THE BATHHOUSE RAIDS

THE BATHHOUSE RAIDS mural – Church Street Mural Project for WorldPride 2014

Christiano painted THE BATHHOUSE RAIDS the largest mural for Church Street Mural Project.

The Church Street Mural Project is one of many exciting projects planned for WorldPride 2014 in Toronto.

In summer 2014, Toronto will host WorldPride, a 10-day celebration that will attract nearly two million people from all corners of the globe to attend the festivities, a number that is both exciting and challenging for the city and its organizers.

Perhaps one of the most potent symbols of the city’s preparation for WorldPride is the Church Street Mural Project, an artistic endeavor located in the heart of the Church-Wellesley Village; 13 artists selected by the city are scheduled to paint 11 large-scale murals which will illustrate Toronto’s diversity through its selection of both local and international artists.
