The Art We Admire at Yorkville Murals 2020 / Yorkville Murals 2020壁畫節時尚高潮推薦作品:

Feel free to walk along Yorkville Avenue and admire the beautiful bird mural by Jarus painted on the Bell telephone box. Catch the “Queen of Colour,” Jacqueline Comrie‘s mural entitled “Forbidden Togetherness” at Cumberland Park. If one if feeling adventurous, head up to the rooftop parking level at 154 Cumberland Street. Birdo‘s “C-Horse” mural covers the entire rooftop parking level. Jason Botkin‘s mural, which he describes as “an interconnected series of plant, animal and insect life indigenous to Ontario, each of which has been deemed threatened or endangered,” can be found in the courtyard of 99 Yorkville Ave.

中文版 / Chinese version:
隨意沿著Yorkville Avenue走,過客可欣賞到Bell電話亭上塗有藝術家Jarus的美麗鳥壁畫作。 別錯過Cumberland Park Jacquelin Comrie的女王壁畫更是壯觀。 如果喜歡冒險,那就去154 Cumberland Street的頂樓停車場。 Birdo的「 C-Horse」畫作覆蓋了整個屋頂停車位。 Jason Botkin的壁畫被他描述為「安大略省土生土長的動植物和昆蟲的相互聯繫的系列,每一種都受到威脅或瀕臨絕種」,這作畫可以在99 Yorkville Ave的庭院中找到。
