It’s not the Royal Academy, but RUSH LANE’s year ’round street art and mural spectacular is well worth a visit. The Lane itself is several blocks long, and runs parallel to Queen Street West. Enter from the west side of Spadina Avenue, half a block south of Queen. Every AUGUST many of the city’s muralists and street artists repaint, so the art here is always bright and fresh. A few months from now it will look totally different. Comedian Rick Mercer uses Rush Lane as a set for his weekly television rants.
Subway stop – OSGOODE, and then streetcar #501 to Spadina Avenue
