About This Project

100 Years celebrates the centennial anniversary of the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC)! School-aged youth from across Toronto submitted artworks and concepts reflecting what they think the future holds for the TTC, with lead artist Rosena Fung developing a collage of the winning entries. The artist layered the student visions to co-exist in a single, final public art installation to be enjoyed at Davisville subway station for years to come.

 This mural depicts the vision of bright young people for the TTC over the next hundred years. It includes inspiring ideas that expand on accessibility, safety, and technological innovation dedicated to the environment and inclusiveness in a meaningful way. From new vehicle models to creative uses of existing infrastructure, and to the expansion of lines and services, the vision for the future looks brilliant and we are ready for it!
