Located at the foot of Jarvis St. and Queen’s Quay on the side of the Redpath Sugar Factory, is Toronto’s whales. The mural was part of the Whaling Wall series of outdoor art by the artist Wyland. The Whaling Wall started in the 80s and were meant to change the way people thought about the environment and were created via invitation of the cities and buildings which they were painted on. Toronto’s mural ‘Heavenly Waters’, was #70 in the series and was dedicated on September 1, 1997 and is 146 Feet Long x 97 Feet High. The 100th mural was finally finished on June 2008 and completed Wyland’s dream to share his love of marine life with 100 communities around the world.
