Mural Routes is an organization dedicated to mural art which started in Toronto, Canada as a public art project in 1990. Its mission is to promote "wall art as a public art form for the general benefit of communities and artists." The Mural Routes website is considered to be the most comprehensive resource on murals on the web. Visitors will find a great interactive map of the murals across Canada on the "Mural Map of Canada" link, they will also find the route of "photographic ambassador" John Hands who has documented hundreds of outdoor murals across Canada. Visitors shouldn't miss the many murals located in Montreal, Quebec, especially "Diversitree", "Winter Haze" and "Rush of Fall". Many of the murals in Montreal emphasize its ethnic diversity and openness to newcomers. Mural Routes even gives visitors the opportunity to get their mural projects listed on the map, by clicking on the link, at the bottom of the page, next to the caricature of John Hands. Visitors interested in murals outside of Canada should click on the "International Murals" tab, to find links to murals in seven other countries, including Greece, Australia, and the United States.
