Fourth-year Illustration student Eryn Lougheed has completed a stairwell mural in 230 Richmond St. W. for the second annual Hullmark Stairwell Mural Career Launcher, a partnership between OCAD U’s Centre for Emerging Artists & Designers and the university’s development and property management collaborator, Hullmark Developments. 

To see the mural, from the main entrance, take the stairs left of the elevators. On the third floor, pass the mural by Adam De Souza (2017 Career Launcher muralist).

It is with tremendous sadness that we let you know that Christine Crosbie passed away on the weekend, following a short battle with cancer.

Our hearts go out to her family, friends and all who were fortunate enough to know her.
