Under The Old Mill Subway Station

I've been showing you various pics from along the Humber River walking trail and several weeks ago I finally went back to get some pics of the wonderful art found on the trail as it runs under the Old Mill subway station. This is near where I showed you the canoes a couple of weeks ago. The First Nation artist Phil Cote painted scenes on each side of the supports depicting the Anishnaabe creation story. You can see some of them here as well as another photographer just to the right of the closest section. I will show you a close-up of the one of the left tomorrow and the rest scattered over the next few weeks.

What a great art project. It does make all that concrete look better. Nice photo too.

I can see why the old mill went out of business.

Looks like someone else was taking pictures, too. :-)

It seems like an odd place for a subway station. Does the channel ever have water in it?

Your picture makes me think how the people in the trains above never know what they are missing! Interesting that it is by a First Nations artist, too.

Iris Flavia said...

Beautiful, but it kinda looks "unfinished"...

Sami said...

Certainly makes all that concrete look so much better!
Thanks for contributing :)

I now realize that the blue let the subway station really float above the ground. Great.

I really like these!

The first nation symbolism in both of our countries is fascinating. Great way to display murals and you did a great job of photographing these.

Darn you! LOL. This is "our" subway station and I just said that the next time we had time to kill waiting for the I would go down and check this out. I had just used Old Mill for Weekend Roundup alphabet meme.
