Some of the best and most well known graffiti artists in the world descended on Toronto earlier this year to create an incredible project called “A Love Letter To The Great Lakes”. A very timely awareness campaign to pay attention to water.DSC_0414DSC_0412I had the chance to check two locations out so far, with one to go.  The first at Ossington and Queen, then Queen and Spadina.DSC_0415DSC_0416 The third location is at the Don West Park at the foot of the Parkway. Due to technical difficulties the site maps I had downloaded were of no use to me so I was left to my own navigational instincts.DSC_0423DSC_0395DSC_0410 I hope I got most of them and certainly these pics are of some of my faves but well worth checking out. The size and magnitude of some of these pieces is inspirational as is the amazing talent these artists have shared. DSC_0421DSC_0390Each piece a cause to stop and think of the utmost importance of water to all species of life. DSC_0430DSC_0432Thanks to all the artists and everyone involved in this effort and to everyone else, take a walk and see some of this before it’s too late.DSC_0424DSC_0392DSC_0391 Some of these buildings won’t be around much longer. Stay tuned and hopefully I will get to the third location soon. Enjoy Toronto!
