This project is part of I HeART Main Street, a program supporting Business Improvement Areas (BIAs) with the support they need to activate their main streets through public art and placemaking. This program engages BIAs, local artists and businesses across Ontario to create more vibrant and safe communities.
Project Type: Temporary Exhibit
Artist: FP Monkey
Artist Statement: “Market Day” represents the diverse range of foods, businesses and activities found in Kensington Market. These elements are connected and dependent on one another, seen in a flow throughout the piece. Nothing stands alone and everything compliments each other. The style and use of colour to bring everything together allude to the values of community and solidarity.
About the BIA: The Kensington Market Business Improvement Area (KMBIA) was formed in 2009 and represents over 240 businesses. Kensington Market is one of the many BIA’s throughout Toronto and is the voice of our diverse business community.
Thank you to our additional supporters!
