Somewhere over the rainbow

4 11 2012

If you have driven up the Don Valley Parkway any time in the last 30+ years or so, you will have noticed that a tunnel near the Lawrence Avenue exit was painted in all of the colours of the rainbow. According to the Star, the rainbow has been repainted.

The article is fascinating reading. I didn’t know that the person who painted it was arrested four times for trespassing, or that he had repeatedly gone back to repaint the rainbow over a period of more than 20 years.

The Facebook album of photos of the rainbow’s restoration is here.
