Discover, explore and engage with five interactive public art installations on Queens Quay West this month.
Three-dimensional, faceted hands standing three metres high; glowing, modular boxes from Denmark; and oversized, camouflaged massing models will each mark Toronto’s Waterfront in January as part of a brand new public art exhibition entitled Ice Breakers.
A collaboration between The WBIA and the founders of Winter Stations – the popular, annual art competition held along Toronto’s East End Beaches – Ice Breakers was conceived to inspire exploration of the urban Waterfront in the colder months. Developed in partnership with PortsToronto and Waterfront Toronto, all five Ice Breakers installations will be dispersed throughout the Waterfront between Yonge St. and Bathurst St. beginning January 21. The exhibition will run over five weeks, coinciding with the debut of the third annual Winter Stations Competition in The Beaches on Family Day.
