Friends of the Pan Am Path
The best art stays with you. It provokes thought and discussion. It may even be a catalyst for change. With that sentiment in mind, the Friends of the Pan Am Path commissioned a group of street artists to paint a series of public art murals on a underpass of a Toronto highway ramp near city's Don River.
What is happening in Toronto four years later is the same game that was played out in New York City in 2010. Its part of the soft-jihad waged by Islamists and their left-wing allies, one that uses Islam and multiculturalism to whip up an anti-West sentiment among Muslim youth and create symbols that can be seen as a middle finger to the "Great Satan."
Street art can bring vitality to a corner or neighbourhood. But who gets to decide what form the art will take? In the latest installment of our "Change My Mind" series, HuffPost asked an artist and a community leader to debate the statement: Government should keep its nose out of artistic expression, even in public spaces.
