Underpass park graffiti

Graffiti artists let loose on Underpass Park

On June 20, as part of the Pan Am Path Art Relay, Underpass Park was transformed into a living and breathing art studio. Artists, musicians, DJs, and athletes from across Toronto came together to renovate the underground skate park and turn it into a cultural space.

Artists had already done significant work on expressway pillars in the area, but this event drastically expanded the scope of the public art in the area. The Live Arts Festival, which incorporated sport, flash mob dancing, and musical performances, is just one of 14 events happening between May 16 and August 15 along the Pan Am Path.

Have a look at the artwork and activities from this weekend's festivities in this photo gallery.
