Underpasses and bridges in Toronto’s east end are getting a colourful facelift.

The first of a series of nine murals along the Carlaw-Dundas rail corridor was finished late last month as part of an integrated street art vision called the East End Bridges to Art underpass series.

The newest mural — created by lead artist Kirsten McCrea — is located at Gerrard Street East and Carlaw Avenue. Another mural in the area will be unveiled in the fall and the remaining murals will be coordinated with other City of Toronto projects and completed over the next two to three years.

The work is funded through the StART Underpass Program (StART UP), which aims to beautify underpasses around Toronto.
