Searching for Toronto area art is now a whole lot easier. The city has launched a new online map to help locals and visitors alike find the street art that dots the city.
The map features a sampling of murals created through the city’s StreetARToronto initiative, which aims to reduce graffiti vandalism. The digital map identifies the artist and arts organization responsible for the painting, and also describes the stories and themes behind each piece. The city is also launching a new online funding application portal meant to make it faster and easier for local artists to apply for funding from the arts initiative.
