September 22, 2021 – Are you ready, Toronto? We’re about to kick off the third edition of Yorkville Murals! Yorkville Murals is an annual three-day cultural event that celebrates contemporary muralism and public art. It will take place from September 24-26th, 2021. Through the creation of artistic murals in Yorkville, and the implementation of cultural activations such as artist installations, creative panels, and movie screenings, this project focuses on making Yorkville a landmark in Toronto for public art and an ultimate tourist destination.
Unique and exciting components of the festival will be taking place all over the neighbourhood of Yorkville. There is so much to explore; for the full cultural map, check out the Festival’s official site.
The event, organized in partnership with the Bloor-Yorkville Business Improvement Association, is also a program partner of the ArtworxTO: Toronto’s Year of Public Art 2021–2022. YVM builds on Yorkville’s reputation as a historic enclave of Toronto’s early twentieth century art scene. The event has been designed as a safe, self-guided experience in the heart of Toronto.
Yorkville Murals is presented by INK Entertainment and powered by Taglialatella Galleries.
