Façade is a public art program held at Lakeshore Collegiate Institute (LCI) that provides opportunities for students from different educational streams to work collaboratively on art projects. The objective of this program is to expose students to a wide variety of art practices that will allow them to beautify and leave legacy pieces within their school. Each year, the Façade project changes. Since 2009, participating LCI students have worked with professional artists to create 2 murals, a mosaic wall, a sculptural bench, and a series of self-portraits.
