How to be a part of CBC Toronto's Art in the 6ix project

How do you encapsulate Toronto in a single image?

You explore its every nook and cranny, speak to everyone you meet, snap a photograph and weave it together.

Muralist Jason Rouleau, photographer Randy Richardson and artist Mike Davis visited several Toronto neighbourhoods over the last few weeks to take photographs for a photo project that will be unveiled at Yonge-Dundas Square to mark Toronto's 182nd birthday as part of CBC Toronto's Art in the 6ix event.

"Finding yourself in the [project] is just one part of it," Richardson said. "It's actually seeing how you make up the tapestry that is Toronto. I found myself within this, too."

"We went all over Toronto — downtown, the east, the west — we did get to represent a wide variety of people in Toronto and the diversity," Rouleau said.

CBC Toronto wants to feature you in the piece, too. Have your photograph taken to become a part of the artwork.

Join us at Yonge-Dundas Square on Friday at noon for the unveiling and a birthday bash for the city with Mayor John Tory.

Say hi to CBC Toronto hosts Anne-Marie Mediwake, Dwight Drummond and Metro Morning's Matt Galloway and stop by our cozy CBC Winter Lounge for hot chocolate, cupcakes and tons of giveaways (while quantities last.)

We'll be at the square 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. all weekend as well.
