About Winter Stations
Winter Stations is now embarking on its third-year, bringing temporary public art installations to The Beaches, exhibited to celebrate Toronto’s winter waterfront landscape. The exhibition takes place across Balmy, Kew and Ashbridges Bay beaches located in the heart of the Beach community, south of Queen Street East, between Woodbine and Victoria Park Avenues. The exhibition runs February 20 until March 27, 2017.
The Winter Stations 2017 theme is Catalyst: Converting one form or substance into another. Artists and designers were asked to unearth and intervene in such a way as to open up the landscape, as well as the minds, of those who come to view and interact with the installations. The installations this year will also be a catalyst for change. Designers have been challenged to consider how their installation materials can be repurposed and recycled.
Here’s a sneak peek at what you’ll see on the beach!
