About the mural: Local artist Doug Van has been commissioned by the City of Toronto and the Kensington Market BIA to produce a mural that will reflect the many cultural and diverse peoples that have been making Kensington Market their home since the mid 1800’6. Each panel of the mural will reflect a different generation starting from the early 1900’s to the present.
This mural will have many uses for visitors and locals alike by helping create a warm and inviting atmosphere for all. We have also invited many tours groups that do bring international guest to the market to stop by and visit the mural at the start of their tour or somewhere in the middle
This mural will take up to 3 weeks to complete and we invite you to come see its progress! You are also invited to take pictures of the artist while working on the wall and to share this story with your peers via social media.
