Art crawl coming to Danforth

Art lovers can rejoice on the Danforth this spring.

The Art of the Danforth, April 23-May 2, is a new local event taking place in East Danforth between Greenwood and Woodbine Avenues.

Works created by both professional artists and community groups will be displayed in empty store windows, store walls, on the street and in parks.

In addition to showcasing artistic talent in Toronto, the idea behind the public art walk is to display the cultural diversity found along the iconic strip.

Some of the events and exhibits include street corner performances on weekends, a display by Woodgreen Newcomer Youth, photo mosaics, and multimedia displays created by local seniors. The Danforth Coxwell library will get dolled up with colourful windsocks made by students from Earl Beatty Junior and Senior Public School.

Participants are also invited to come to RedSable and paint small works at no charge.

The event is being sponsored by the Ontario Trillium Foundation, the Danforth Mosaic Business Improvement Area, Carrot Cache, East York Foundation and the Toronto Arts Council. For more information visit artofthedanforth.com.
