The Scarborough Sign

MEDIAH - Scarborough, Canada
Scarborough-based multidisciplinary artist MEDIAH will paint live on the 36-foot-long Scarborough Sign to start off the evening. The public will be invited to witness a new creation unfold before their eyes in this street-performance-style public-art installation that blurs the lines between post-graffiti art and dynamic abstraction.
The Scarborough Sign, coordinated by Scarborough Arts, is part of a global trend of public city-name sign installations. Since June, The Scarborough Sign has travelled to four neighbourhoods in Scarborough and has engaged communities with fabric weaving, spoken-word poetry, 2SLGBTQ+ portrait photography and more. Showcasing the rich artistic vibrancy in Scarborough, The Scarborough Sign draws attention to centres of artistic activity that make Scarborough a destination of choice for locals and visitors alike.
MEDIAH is a Canadian multidisciplinary visual artist who works in post-graffiti and dynamic abstraction.
