February 22, 2013
The Parkdale BIA is proud to share the anticipated "The Reclamation Project Documentary". In July of 2012, 50+ of Toronto’s premier graffiti, mural and street artists liberated one of Canada’s largest graffiti walls. A highly vandalized sound barrier, located at Queen West and Dufferin alongside the Metrolinx rail tracks, targeted by Toronto’s Graffiti Bi-law. At the request of the property developers, the community and in partnership with Metrolinx a team of local artists and community arts workers assembled to organize and coordinate a monumental mural that encompasses the entire wall from end to end. This mural incorporate artists of different urban styles, community volunteers and local arts organizations in an efforts to create a historical installation that represents and preserves Toronto’s street art scene in its current state.
