To celebrate Toronto and the outstanding creative talent in Toronto, Micki Moore in collaboration with StreetARToronto (StART), has launched the ‘Art Over Bridges’ project to engage artists to design and install three dimensional artwork on bridges in Toronto. Art Over Bridges is a transformative new placemaking initiative that adds colour and vitality to neighbourhoods; demonstrates the positive impacts of diversity and inclusion, fosters community engagement; encourages active transportation; and showcases the creativity of artists, arts organizations and the city of Toronto.

At the heart of Micki’s vision is a series of vibrant and high-quality Art Bridges throughout Toronto, beginning with art over the Jameson Avenue Pedestrian bridge. Micki’s placemaking initiative promises to strengthen the connection between people and the places they share through a collaborative process to improve the look and feel of our streets and the public realm.
