How do you encapsulate Toronto in a single image?
You explore its every nook and cranny, speak to everyone you meet, snap a photograph and weave it together.
Muralist Jason Rouleau, photographer Randy Richardson and artist Mike Davis visited several Toronto neighbourhoods over the last few weeks to take photographs for a mosaic photo project unveiled at Yonge-Dundas Square to mark Toronto's 182nd birthday as part of CBC Toronto's Art in the 6ix event.
"Finding yourself in the [project] is just one part of it," Richardson said. "It's actually seeing how you make up the tapestry that is Toronto. I found myself within this, too."
"We went all over Toronto — downtown, the east, the west — we did get to represent a wide variety of people in Toronto and the diversity," Rouleau said.
Mayor John Tory said Toronto should celebrate its diversity and "that's what this art does."
CBC Toronto wants to feature you in the piece, too. Have your photograph taken to become a part of the artwork.
We'll be at the square 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. all weekend.
