About This Project

The Humber River Flows Through Here is a mural that gives us a scenic view of Vaughan and the Humber River in Toronto’s Greater Toronto Area. Erin McCluskey wanted to show a joyful green space where people live, work and play – in this mural, we see a diverse neighbourhood enjoying the leisure of their weekend activities.

Project Partner

These works of art were made possible by BMO in collaboration with STEPS Public Art. BMO’s National Mural Series was designed to create opportunities to celebrate local communities and the people who live and visit them. By working with hyper local artists to design murals with meaning and impact specific to each location, BMO hopes to bring art to locations where artists and community members might not otherwise have an opportunity.

At BMO, we are proud to be partners in these communities, celebrate our customers, and support local artists. These beautiful pieces of art not only express BMO’s values and celebrate diversity they also provide opportunities to surprise and delight those visiting our branches. We look forward to expanding this program and curating many more murals in branches across Canada.
