A Love Letter to the Great Lakes Street artists from around the world gather in Toronto for public art project, June 20-25

PangeaSeed Foundation presents A Love Letter to the Great Lakes, a week-long festival lineup of local and international artists who will paint permanent murals to beautify Toronto streetscapes. The festival aims to stimulate public awareness of critical issues facing the Great Lakes, which contain 95% of North America’s surface freshwater. This is the first festival of its kind dedicated to the Great Lakes, and is modelled after PangeaSeed’s successful ‘SeaWalls: Murals for Oceans’ public art project.

The murals will act as the artists’ own ‘love letters’ to the Great Lakes across downtown Toronto on donated wall space at Ossington, Queen/Spadina and the Lower Don. Artists’ collections will be showcased and sold at an exhibition on from June 20-25th at our festival headquarters, Rally Ossington (12 Ossington Ave) to raise funds for the cause.

Other festival events include a bike tour led by artistic director Jason Botkin, and a fundraising party hosted also at Rally.
