Scene: Getting Dirty for a Good Cause

A pretty good payoff for playing in the dirt.

WHERE: 850 Richmond Street West

WHEN: Wednesday, June 6, 10 a.m.–2 p.m.

WHAT: Artist Scott Wade created images drawn into very dirty cars yesterday, in association with the ninth annual CARSTAR Soaps It Up Fundraiser for Cystic Fibrosis Canada. Approaching the venue, it first looked rather like a mechanic’s shop, with many cars parked in front, including one particularly filthy vehicle. Upon closer inspection though, the filthy vehicle had an incredibly detailed image etched into the dirt. Others did too—you can see some of the work in the gallery above.
