A Community Mural

This mural decorates the side of a building that borders a city parking lot in the Hillcrest Village neighbourhood which is a lovely well-treed older area centred around St Clair Ave. St Clair is peppered with restaurants and small independent stores along here and is also the site of a controversial streetcar line that is totally separated from car traffic, something that divided the opinions of homeowners and the businesses as to its effect on traffic movement. So it is fitting to see the front of a #512 streetcar in the mural!

It's like a little city of it's own.

Nice the way the street name and number appear to be worked into the mural.

It's awesome.
I like too when people use community places to do a such nice thing/art, it really inspires me :)

This is bright and colorful. I like that it was designed as if each module was a different dwelling or shop.

Good to see a dull inner city area brightened up.

Wow - that's busy. Not sure I'd like that near me - definitely too bright after too many beers. Congrats on passing 1500!

Cheerful, bright and certainly says a lot about the neighbourhood it's in.

I like that the artist created a village under the village sign. Thanks, Pat, for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

Love it Pat.. I don't care what anyone says, murals really do brighten up otherwise boring walls.
