The redevelopment of Wallace Emerson Park and the Galleria Mall in the Dupont Street West area of Toronto is an opportunity to invest the site as the start-up location for an Art Garden Corridor. This exhibition presents works by leading artists with practices in sculpture, public art, and place making. They offer art in the form of garden sculptures to be imagined as public art theoretical examples and way-finding markers for the Art Garden Corridor route.
Drop In! Participate! Free! Discover art and encouragement to make your own garden. Hands-on, garden-making resources are available to create Spot Gardens with seeds, tools, information and events. Workshop program listed at CivicStudies.ca/Place-And-Placement/ .
