Every year, MU goes back to where it all began by installing a piece in Parc-Extension, the neighbourhood where it produced its very first mural in 2007. The borough’s chosen theme—the meeting of cultures—is still at the heart of our projects.
This summer, artist Caitlin McDonagh, originally from British Columbia and current Parc-Ex resident, created the vibrant mural Holding Together. The electric colours chosen were inspired by the daycare on the building’s top floor. The theme so dear to the borough is reflected in the different complementary shapes that come together in the centre of the wall in the form of a rainbow and hands shaking. The mural is refreshing, and its unique motifs and colours evoke community relationships and meetings between cultures.
