Bell Box Mural Project

The Bell Box Murals Project is a program of Community Matters Toronto. Since 2009, artists from the Bell Boxes Murals Project have painted murals on Bell Canada outdoor utility boxes throughout Toronto, Southern Ontario and Quebec.

The benefits of the Bell Boxes Murals Project include:

- Replaces graffiti and vandalism with original works of art.

- Makes the streets more inviting to residents and visitors.

- Enhances residents' sense of community.

- Art is accessible to all people, regardless of income, language or social stature.

- Creates a public art channel to reflect local culture and heritage.

- Provides income and opportunities for local artists.

This program is a great way of giving back to the arts community, cultivating partnerships with local Arts and neighbourhood organizations, while also beautifying the neighbourhood. To support these mural projects, I've allocated additional funding through City Council and helped to secure 47 Bell Box murals at the following Etobicoke-Lakeshore neighbourhoods:

  • Alderwood

  • Humber Bay Shores

  • Long Branch,

  • Mimico

  • New Toronto

  • Sunnylea-Stonegate

I'm excited to continue expanding this project to more neighbourhoods in Ward 3 !!
