leslieville mural

Leslieville finally has its new mural (and it looks good)

Leslieville finally has its brand new mural. And like the last one at Queen and Jones, this piece of street art by Elicser also features poet and songwriter Alexander Muir.

Leslievillians first learned they'd be getting a new mural in July 2015. This happened without any community consultations and many were displeased. But eventually, Councillor Paula Fletcher, along with the BIA and the Leslieville Historical Society, brought three potential mural designs to the public, who were able to give feedback on each one.

Elicser's colourful and graffiti-inspired piece won the competition, and it's now sitting pretty in its rightful home amidst the Leslieville streetscape. You can go check it out today.

What do you think of the new mural? Let us know in the comments.
