Toronto's downtown core just got a whole lot artsier. A group of local artists are taking over the city with their work and are turning the popular Dundas Square into a massive canvas. As part of the "It's All Right Now" project, the work will help show how Toronto is dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.\nWhere ads once covered the streets, powerful and inspiring visuals will now be taking over.\nIt’s All Right Now is “a public art project” and a movement that will aim to capture the experience of life in a post-pandemic Toronto.\nTwenty Toronto artists will be taking over the streets of the 6ix with their work.\n“The artists each created powerful textual responses in their own visual styles that, together, speak to the diversity and multiplicities of this complex moment: hopeful, fearful, forward-looking, introspective, joyful, even rousing,” reads a statement on the group’s website.\nPhotos of the project utilizing some of Toronto’s most visible billboards have already begun popping up on social media.\nHowever, it's not just billboards that will be showings these amazing pieces.\nView this post on Instagram Thrilled to see my illustration light up Yonge-Dundas Square as part of @thebentway's #ItsAllRightNow campaign, a COVID-19 responsive art project at the scale of the city. I was asked to respond to the prompt, "what words are you living by, right now?" Throughout the lockdowns, I've been fascinated with the idea that most of the world, like never before, is at home right now, and that homes come in all shapes and sizes. And so, MAKE YOURSELF AT HOME. Look out for mine and other artists' responses around town over the next month!

This is a proud statement of hope; remembering that the strength and resilience of our ancestors is in us, that we’ll survive this together continuing to care for all our relations. 🤍💛❤️🖤 Chi Miigwetch to @thebentway for giving me a chance to create and share how I’ve been feeling. #itsallrightnow #indigenousart #indigenouspride A post shared by Bekah Brown (@bekahlbrown) on May 26, 2020 at 7:46pm PDT\nThe massive undertaken is being organized by the same folks who created The Bentway, an innovative public space project that transformed underneath Toronto’s Gardiner Expressway into “a new gathering place for our city’s growing population.”\n“ Sites that had, in “the before,” been platforms for consumer marketing, and just weeks ago used to share mass directives on public health safety and social distancing guidelines, are re-tuned for a newly honest and artist-driven dialogue,” the statement adds.\nView this post on Instagram Christine Brubaker & Cathleen Sbrizzi join forces in creating a response to the question, "What words are you living by right now?" @brubakerchristine is a director, writer, and performer, and the winner of two Dora Mavor Moore Awards for performance, the 2014 Gina Wilkinson Prize and 2016 Ken McDougall Award for Direction. @Cathl_Cathl is a costume designer, cutter and illustrator working out of Calgary AB, and has had the pleasure of designing for the opera, theatre, local indie-musicians, film, and television! #itsallrightnow #thebentway #thebentwayTO #toronto #cities #2020 #timecapsule #covid19 #publicart #art #artists #canadianartists A post shared by The Bentway 📍Toronto (@thebentway) on May 27, 2020 at 8:03am PDT\nThe project is expected to roll out over several weeks.
