Since 2009 the Bell Boxes Murals Project have painted 91 murals on Bell Canada outdoor utility boxes throughout Toronto, Southern Ontario and Quebec.
The Bell Box Murals Project is an innovative collaboration between private enterprise, community arts organizations, local artists, residents associations and local governments that benefits all members of the community. The benefits of the Bell Boxes Murals Project include:
• Replaces graffiti and vandalism with original works of art
• Accessible to all residents and visitors, regardless of income or social stature
• Makes the streets more inviting to residents and visitors
• Provides a public art channel to reflect local culture and heritage
• Enhances residents’ sense of community
• Provides income and opportunities for community artists
Each year the Bell Box Mural Project calls for artists in different cities throughout Ontario. They are making their way up North and it will only be time until the Bell Box Mural Project comes to Vaughan!
