Environmental Design professor Mark Tholen and his students were applauded by the Toronto mayor and city councillor Mary-Margaret McMahon on Sunday during a visit to the Steam Canoe installation.

Part of the Winter Stations exhibition on the Toronto Beaches, the structure is made of laminated wood panels curved like the prow of a canoe. Solar tubes at the rear of the structure generate fog by turning snow into steam.

Students Curtis Ho, Jungyun Lee, Monifa Onca Charles, Reila Park, Hamid Shahi, Lambert St‐Cyr, Jaewon Kim and Jason Wong worked with Tholen to create and install the temporary shelter.  

The exhibition, themed Freeze/Thaw, consists of seven installations built over lifeguard towers which visitors can enter, climb and interact with. OCAD U, Ryerson and Laurentian University were invited to submit their designs, while international artists and designers were selected via juried submission.    

Freeze/Thaw runs on the waterfront from Woodbine to Victoria Park avenues and continues through March 20.

A new take on the Vegas Golden Knights logo

Vegas Golden Knights secondary logo

OCAD University advertising student Matt Doyle has a new take on the Vegas Golden Knights logo. 

"After watching the unveiling for the NHL's newest expansion, Vegas Golden Knights, I and many others were quite disappointed with the outcome of the logo. Dull colours and concept left the feeling of the logo very unappealing. For a team in Vegas, the colour and concept of the design should speak for itself with brightness and a simplistic complexity in the layout," says Matt. "I chose to not only do a primary crest, featured with the full knight figure, but also a secondary crest, featured with the circular layout that can be used for not only the jersey crest but also as a shoulder patch." 

"By brightening up the colours and adding some much needed complexity and 'loudness' to the design, I feel I have made a fairly decent attempt at a suggestion for a rebrand of the team," says Matt.

The eighth annual Experiencing Perspectives art exhibition at Mercedes-Benz Financial Services (MBFS) opened November 16 with a reception at the company’s Mississauga offices. Artists, MBFS staff and guests wandered the office space as though it were a gallery.

Over 90 works by students, faculty and alumni are positioned throughout the offices, corridors and boardrooms of the company with the goal of giving staff an inspiring, creative environment and appreciation of the work of emerging artists. The exhibition will remain in place for a year.

Stefan Karrenbauer, President and CEO of MBFS Canada announced that the Mississauga office made its fourth purchase of work for their permanent collection, a painting titled Vigilante (Watcher) by recent graduate Diego de la Rosa.  

MBFS has supported OCAD University to a tune of over $152,000 since 2009. The company has also recently pledged $64,000 over two years to support GradEx, the Drawing & Painting Medal Winner Award, the Drawing &Painting Entrance Scholarship and the Drawing and Painting Graduate Catalogue. The company’s Drawing & Painting Medal Winner award has been increased to $5,000, and the Drawing & Painting Entrance Scholarship has also grown to $5,000
