Pan Am Path – In Hazel’s Eye

hurricane_hazel

Over 18 days in May I had the pleasure of working with my good friend Gabriel Specter on a mural in Toronto’s Cruickshank Park as part of the Pan Am Path Art Relay. The mural depicts the energy of Hurricane Hazel which struck Toronto on October 15, 1954 and caused severe damage to many of the low lying areas along the Humber River. As a result of this storm, however, the TRCA was born and spaces along the Humber, like Cruickshank Park where the mural is located, were redeveloped to the benefit of all Torontonians. Special thanks to the folks at UrbanArts, City of Toronto Parks and Friends of the Pan Am Path.
