Artists from Ralph Thornton Centre (RTC) summer mural program unveiled their 2011 summer project in front of a small group in Leslieville on the sunny patio of OK OK Diner, located at 1128 Queen St. E. on Aug. 17. The band of talented student artists journeyed through time, bringing residents back to 1940’s Toronto with a contemporary multi-media twist depicted in this summer’s mural. Students for the first time opted to not only use paint, but to also incorporate gel and wood into the innovative summer mural piece.
The Ralph Thornton Centre mural project runs every summer in the Leslieville/Riverside neighbourhoods, to give local youth an opportunity to explore their creativity on a large scale. The murals created help improve general perceptions of public art and mutually benefits both local businesses and artists.
