"Morning Glory"


When you enter yesterday's subway station you encounter this wonderful playful surreal enamel mural as you proceed to the stairs. Titled "Morning Glory", by Canadian artist Louis de Niverville, who is most well-known for his collage work, it draws on imagery from his childhood and his dreams. Perfect for that dreamy state of mind many of us are in during the morning commute! I took this shot just after last week's snow so its illuminating skylight is still covered.

Wonderful mural, I love when I find art at subway stations!
Beautiful, I like the vintage touch.

I've enjoyed your blog this past week or so. Thanks for taking me with you through the University College. My grandparents met in Toronto and I have many distant relatives still there, even a graveyard full of my Denison folk. I enjoy connecting to the city through your blog.

Cool. My dreams are very weird and would probably scare away people if I were to paint them!

I wish a few more of our subways had art in them. It does make underground travel far more pleasant
