New Art Benches Coming to Liberty Village in Spring 2019
Exciting news! Our APR committee has been working hard with Mural Routes and the City of Toronto to bring a pop of colour and additional seating to the Liberty Village community with new art benches! A total of 14 art benches will be installed in Spring 2019. The reveal date will be announced in the next few months.
The underlining theme of these designs is to capture the past industrial history and modern creative center that makes up Liberty Village.
It has been a pleasure to support local artists and beautify the streetscape for the community and visitors to the neighbourhood.
Thank you to all the contributing artists and volunteers who dedicated their time to bring a fresh look to the Liberty Village community.
