A new mosaic project, completed June 2015, presented by Friends of the Pan Am Path, Red Dress Productions, Arts Etobicoke, and Amnesty International Toronto. Design by Anna Camilleri.
An intersection of human rights and community arts for the Pan Am Path.
“Men and women of full age, without any limitation due to race, nationality or religion, have the right to marry and have a family.”
- Article 16, Universal Declaration of Human Rights
The Pan Am Path is an 83km trail connecting Toronto’s communities; an active-living legacy of continuous path for walking, running, biking and wheeling. The Art Relay takes community artists from across the city to animate and activate sections of the trail.
Arts Etobicoke and Red Dress Productions collaborated to produce Album, in conjunction with Friends of the Pan Am Path and Amnesty International’s Project: Urban Canvas—a mural series celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (www.aito.ca/urbancanvas). Album is a permanent public artwork for The Art Relay based on Article 16 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Connecting human rights and community arts, Album seeks to challenge society’s views of family and athleticism.
The Pan Am Path Path Art Relay is proudly supported by the City of Toronto, Toronto Foundation, Ontario Trillium Foundation, Ontario Cultural Attractions Fund, Toronto Star, Toronto Arts Council, Trans Canada Trail, Canadian Heritage, United Way Toronto, Toronto and Region Conservation Authority, Lotus Leaf, and Westbury National.
