Fence Art Mural at The Scarborough Museum - as part of 100 in 1 Day Interventions!
This Saturday June 7th, Scarborough Historical Museum will be transformed into a large outdoor public art studio.
From 12 - 3pm everyone is invited to join in painting and stenciling pieces for a mural, aided by a group of Mural Routes artists.
Scarborough Museum is happy to host this public art intervention, coordinated and facilitated by the artists at Mural Routes. The mural will brighten the 300 ft. outside fence that winds around the museum, with a theme of Welcome.
The Museum joins 100 different public spaces around Toronto that will be animated by creative and unconventional projects as part of the first 100 in 1 Day event. 100 in 1 Day asks, What if hundreds of people united, each putting in place the changes they wish to see in their city, all on the same day?
