Ryerson leaves its mark at Nuit Blanche

It appears Ryerson has left its mark at this year’s Nuit Blanche in a negative way.  

The world-famous Toronto sign in Nathan Phillip’s was covered in graffiti during the festivities this past weekend.

It’s still not clear who is responsible for the markings, but among the inscriptions left on the sign were three words: “Ramms (SIC), HTM, Ryerson.”

On Saturday evening, the Toronto sign became an unintentional art installation of its own. Most of the letters of our city’s namesake sign were covered in graffiti that looks like the work of Nuit Blanche attendees armed with permanent markers.  

If you look closely at the top-right of the “N” in the sign, you’ll notice the unofficial Ryerson tag.

By Monday morning, the sign was cleaned of all graffiti after the city and Nuit Blanche staff initiated an immediate clean-up.

The city said that they don’t plan on investigating the matter any further, nor will they be pursuing legal action.
