As you walk east on Wellesley towards Church St., you can’t miss the large mural on the side of Ho’s Team Barber and Hairstylist.  The red circle with it’s white words “I’m One Too” catch your attention.   The mural, by Will Craddock, is part of the Church Street Mural Project.

  street scene in winter, looking along the sidewalk with a couple of people on it.  On the left is a three storey red brick building in the background.  In the foreground is a shorter building (seen from the side) covered with a mural depicting buttons with slogans and sayings on them.

The circles in the mural are paintings of buttons from the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives.

There is actually a small lane that runs beside the button mural.  If you walk a little but down that lane and then look at the wall on the other side, you will see another artwork from the Church Street Mural Project.  ‘Kiss and Tell’ by Natalie Wood is a series of silhouette couples with their heads close together, either talking or kissing.

Two men talking to each other on a wall.  The men are shown from the waist up.  They are made of paper and pasted on the wall.  The paper is actually a collection of prints of book covers.

silhouettes of four couples either kissing or close together talking.  The silhouettes are collages of prints of book covers.
