It’s called the Toronto Love Project, initiated by local artist Berene Campbell. The art installation aims to inspire hope after Toronto’s deadly van attack earlier this year.
North York Arts has hung a series the colourful quilted banners at a civic centre near the stretch of Yonge Street where a rental van mounted a sidewalk and ran down pedestrians in its path, killing 10 people. The installation, on display until September 8th, features long quilted banners stitched with messages of hope, peace and love. It’s meant to counter the hate and sadness of the attack, that left 10 people dead.
