“Public Art – Colour Their World – Wading Pool Murals Aim To Inspire Wee Ones” – By Tatum Dooley – Spacing Magazine, Summer 2017, Page 17

‘…The idea that murals add a colourful element that enhances parks was echoed by artist HiMY SYeD:

“Wading pools are only used for their intentional purpose a few hours out of the year.”‘

‘The Labyrinths that HiMY has painted on wading pools scattered throughout Toronto add an element of play for children whether there is water or not, increasing the hours they’re used. …’

My Giant Canada150+ Chalk Labyrinth in shape of a Maple Leaf… – Jack Poole Plaza – Vancouver, Unceded Coast Salish Territory

On this Canada Day 2017, I found my way to Jack Poole Plaza in Downtown Vancouver and the big empty space of interlocking bricks immediately north of the Olympic Cauldron which was lit up to mark Canada150.

I chalked out a Giant Maple Leaf which contained a Labyrinth.

It was enjoyed almost immediately by many.

It was also walked over, invisible to many.

This City, Vancouver, has added a “+” to their Canada150 observances of the year.

That “+” is to acknowledge Indigenous Peoples and their Unceded Coast Salish Territory upon which we as settlers/colonizers now occupy.

To many in Vancouver, Indigenous People and their Territory are now seen and acknowledged.

To many elsewhere in Canada, Indigenous People and their Territory remain invisible.

“Coasting on my bike” – Wading Pool Labyrinth – Ed McCleverty Equal Access Playground – Toronto

Wading Pools in Toronto’s Public Parks are much more than simply small scale swimming pools for little ones.

They can double as Labyrinths after I paint them.

When a little older, kids on skateboards may go round and round and round my wading pool Labyrinths.

One boarder told me how my Labyrinth lines help in his situational awareness when enjoying his ride.

Wading Pools are often used by parents to teach their children how to ride a bicycle.

Ergo, A Velodrome for Tricycles and Push Bikes!

This is the Wading Pool Labyrinth I painted, choosing blue for the circuits.

You can enjoy walking in Riverdale Park West, just steps away from the animals in front of the Riverdale Farm / Zoo.
