"These industries haven't historically been involved with art, so they come to us," said Alexis Speer, founding director of STEPS. "Construction is not something we all enjoy seeing so this work gives builders a chance to make art that benefits the community."

Since 2014, developers in Toronto are required by law to make 50 per cent of the boarding around construction sites available for community artwork.
However, many building projects were started before the bylaw and were exempted from the requirement. Fortunately, Speer said there's been a lot of momentum in the last few months.
