Scene: A New Mural on College Street

A pair of artists beautify a school fence.

WHERE: Outside Kensington Community School, near College and Bathurst Streets

WHEN: Wednesday, June 12

WHAT: A giant fence facing a busy stretch of College Street is nothing if not an invitation to graffiti writers looking for high-profile places to scrawl their names. Street artists Sean Martindale and Pascal Paquette had other ideas. At the request of the fence’s owner, Kensington Community School, and with the help of a City grant, the pair began work on this colourful mural before winter; they hope to finish it this week. It says, in giant letters: “Time is On Our Side / Yes It Is,” a nod to the song “Time is on My Side,” written by Jerry Ragovoy and later notably performed by the Rolling Stones.

    The artwork also continues west, on the wooden tree planters and benches.
