Take a walk along a meandering path, punctuated with unexpected lines, canvases for local art, and audio tour stops that highlight Downsview’s rich arts and culture scene, past and present.
Downsview XOXO’s painted path begins just south of Downsview Park Station, at the east exit. Look for a welcome from Jieun June Kim’s tiger—or “horangi”—painted to bring good energy and symbolize courage and power, according to Korean folklore and myth.
Then walk, skip, or jump along the colourful sequence of graphic lines that run for 1.2 kilometres through the Downsview Lands. These playful lines will be a canvas for many more local artists in the months ahead, including five artists from Just B Graphic who will mentor high school students this September and October. Keep an eye out—you might even see them at work! And keep coming back to see how this path evolves.
