The Bell Manor Park Pebble Mosaic Project

Artists: Anna Camilleri, Tristan R. Whiston, Katie Yealland, Wy Joung Kou, Karis Jones-Prad, and Kandace Price

Unveiled on Saturday, September 9, 2017, Some New Grows Here is a 12-foot diameter pebble mosaic created with community members and inspired local stories about the Stonegate-Parklawn neighbourhood, its communities, and Bell Manor Park.


This project was supported by the Toronto Arts Foundation, Toronto Arts Council, the Arts in the Parks program, Stonegate Community Health Centre, and Councillor Justin Di Ciano.
