NEW: Mosaic Sidewalk Tiles Throughout OEV!

The latest addition to Old East Village's impressive array of public art is a series of ten mosaic sidewalk tiles located along Dundas Street between Adelaide and Rectory. They were installed in June of 2023 by the Clayworx Community Mosaic Projects team under the guidance of Mosaic Art Director, Beth Turnbull Morrish. The tiles for each one were created by different community groups and organizations.
