In June 2016 Lifetime Developments commissioned artist Ben Johnston to paint two large-scale murals within the Liberty Market Building’s Galleria that reflect the vibrancy, industrial history, and entrepreneurial culture of Liberty Village.These murals are strong statement pieces and capture the essence of the work hard, live well community, while showcasing Ben Johnston’s unique bold, vintage-inspired typographic flare. The two murals, Hustle and Love Liberty, are distinctly different and incorporate different surfaces, materials and feelings into their form.
Bold and distinct, the murals are photo-worthy neighbourhood icons and feature #LoveLibertyTO, a new hashtag created by the developer to celebrate Liberty Village and encourage a shared conversation about why residents, tenants and visitors alike love the unique charm of Liberty Village.
