RUSH LANE IS A MUST-VISIT – ESPECIALLY IN AUGUST WHEN NEW ART MAKES ITS APPEARANCE

In August TORONTO’s mural painters descend on Rush Lane and colourful new works go up almost overnight. Artists share space with garbage cans, kitchen doors, parked cars, delivery trucks and vans – there’s nothing fancy about this particular venue. Below – new art that’s making the scene in 2017.

A giant mural about TORONTO, its wonders and eccentricities from the Ikea Monkey to the CN Tower, is getting a lot of attention.

Protected by the city as a heritage site, RUSH LANE runs parallel to Queen Street West, and can be entered from the west side of Spadina Avenue, a few steps south of Queen.
