this is funny. someone 'erected' a statue of a naked satan outside a skytrain station overnight. he was rather well endowed lol. it was funny how the news stations blurred it out. there's now a movement to save the 'artwork'.

city crews promptly removed it (even he can't keep a straight face!)

The Reclamation Wall

Located along the Metrolinx rail corridor southwest of the Gladstone Hotel, this is the largest single graffiti mural in Canada. Completed last summer at a length of 300 meters, the collaborative mural features work by some 50 artists.

Just north of Downtown Kingston, along the waterfront trail a giant row of street art murals was painted, I believe earlier this year.

This is a distance picture of some of it but it stretches on for way longer on either side:




Same piece viewed close up on part of it:

A new post on UT is about the art installation outside the Berczy showing where the shoreline of Lake Ontario used to be:

Quote:
The new piece of art is here to remind Torontonians about the history of this place that was our the location of Toronto's waterfront for more than 10,000 years before the shoreline gradually moved south as the port was extended and filled in with ever larger wharfs, eventually reaching its current location. Shoreline Commemorative is a conceptualized and scaled map of the North shore of Lake Ontario, coming up from below the water level. The colouration of the limestone used for this work is the same as what the shoreline would have been before the area was heavily transformed over the past century.






Quote:
The bronze tripod here represents the surveyor's instrument used for city building since the Roman times, a fundamental element in Toronto's history. The sphere on top of it is made of glass, tinted in two different tones to represent the sky above and the lake below, as a memory of the former vista from the foot of Church Street. On the south wall inside the niche, a sand-blasted sentence reads: "For 10,000 years this was the location of Lake Ontario's shoreline. This brick wall stands where water and land met, with a visa of horizon". In a city that has a relatively young history, Paul Raff aims to develop a sense of history by re-embodying a shoreline that was a major element of the city's identity.

I've seen the statue. While it is a replica of a sculpture in Kyiv, it is an unbelievably powerful piece. I need to go get a few pictures.

The Place des Festivals is turning into a giant kaleidoscope, where you can play with the light by pivoting the 50 colourful prisms of Prismatica. The interplay of reflections puts the Quartier des Spectacles in a whole new light.

There's a new very over-thought public art display at St. John's International. A piano.

It's the first of many to be set up around the city. Worldwide movement. Supposedly first one in Atlantic Canada.

Quote:
The project is the brainchild of Business and the Arts NL, a new non-profit organization which CEO John Fisher says is about creating mutually beneficial relationships between the arts and business communities.

Fisher says the organization has been set up to create a two-way exchange between the creative services and imagination of business, and the business sense and capacity of business itself. He says it's dedicated to teaching artists how to better survive economically.

He says Come Play With Me is about placing art in front of people, wherever they may be.
"two-way exchange" might be my new favourite thing. Second only to some poor artist sitting to play this thing and realizing he needs monies.

PRISMATICA BY RAW DESIGN
This interactive installation, comprised of 50 pivoting prisms more than two metres tall, transforms the Place des Festivals into a giant kaleidoscope. The prisms are made of panels covered with a filter that transmits and reflects every colour in the rainbow, varying with the position of the light source and the observer. Wander among the prisms, turn them, and marvel at the infinite interplay of lights and colourful reflections. As the prisms pivot, they are accompanied by a series of variable-intensity bell sounds.

34 large backlit lampshades have been installed on Cartier street in the Montcalm neibourhood, near the Beaux-Arts museum. The lampshades feature reproductions of paintings by Alfred Pellan and Fernand Leduc, from the permanent collection of the Musée National des Beaux-Arts du Québéc.
