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: Asli Alin
Artist Statement: Asli’s interpretation of the theme “Bringing the Lake to Lakeshore” depicts water, the lake, and the environment they coexist within, using organic, strong lines, and strokes. Movement is symbolized using a combination of dynamic line work, and the addition of whimsical patterns and bold colours which bring energy to the final piece.
Asli's banners were also displayed at 2835 and 2965 Lakeshore Blvd W.
About the BIA: Lakeshore Village BIA is made up of business and building owners, as well as community members involved in working committees for events and festivals. In the Heart of New Toronto, Lakeshore Village offers a wide variety of shops, restaurants, cafes and services to keep the community healthy!
