Public Art at the Humber Bridge

I love art in public spaces and wish we had more street art in Toronto. When we went to Chicago last summer we spent our days walking from one sculpture to another, and we couldn't get enough. That's why I love that Toronto's Interactive Arts Collective installed this beautiful sculpture on the Humber Arch Bridge.

These "dancing creatures" caught my eye last week while driving on the Lakeshore and when we took one of our walks by the water I couldn't wait to see them up close. This installation is filled with 1,200 LED lights, making the creatures just glow with colour. I absolutely love it. You have until the end of September to see this luminous work of art at the Humber Bridge and you should. It is stunning, and costs nothing to experience. Rosie :)

Hi Rosie. Your blog warms our hearts as it is exactly why we built this art piece. Thank you for sharing your feelings on the sculpture.

Thanks, Rosie! We sure had fun making it, although it was many long hot dirty hours, it was wonderful. We're so happy that people like it! There is a contest to name the critters, and a fundraising drive - because, although it costs nothing to experience, it cost us over $10,000 out of our own pockets to make it, and we'd love to get some of that back from any of our lovely supporters who are able - it will help us to start our next project sooner! Thanks, Rosie, for telling folks about us!

We saw these Blowfish from our boat on the weekend. They are a very attractive asset to the Humber Bridge. LOVE Toronto, thanks Rosie for pointing out what's new in the big smoke.
