Corktown video of the week

News & Events for the week of January 19, 2015

THE EYES HAVE IT: Corktown’s beloved new underpass murals got a ton of great press over the last week.

Things kicked off with a segment on Metro Morning, with comments from CRBA VP Arthur Sinclair. You can listen to the segment here.

The Toronto Star weighed in soon after, with an article headlined “Corktown underpass murals brighten, enlighten.” We agree — also, hey, that rhymes.

Finally, from Inside Toronto comes word that our own Underpass Park will play host to a three-day underpass mural festival in June. We’re looking forward to it!

BLOOD RELATIONS: This Friday, January 23 marks the debut of BLOOD RELATIONS at Alumnae Theatre. You can still get tickets online — don’t delay! The show runs through February 7.
