The City of Toronto invites artists who identify as Indigenous persons to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to participate in the East End Bridges to Art - Coxwell Underpass Street Art Project. The goal of this Expression of Interest (EOI) is to obtain a roster of artists who will be eligible to participate in this project. The goal of this project is to beautify and animate the underpass with a mural representative of the local, historical indigenous perspective. This Expression of Interest is facilitated by Denise B. McLeod. Denise is Anishinaabe (Ojibway) who’s home territory is Sagamok Anishinabek First Nation on the north shores of Lake Huron.
This project forms a central part of a larger underpass initiative by the City of Toronto called East End Bridges to Art. Produced by StreetARToronto, East End Bridges to Art was initiated by Councillor Fletcher in 2017 to transform all 9 underpasses in Ward 14. This is the fourth underpass art project in the East End Bridges to Art series.
