MEET THE SCULPTORS AT BLOOR YORKVILLE ICE FESTIVAL 2015
Posted on Sat, 21 Feb 2015, 07:38:57 PM  in Toronto Lifestyle,  Toronto Neighborhoods,  Toronto Parks,  Yorkville
Tags:,  ,    

The Ice Festival in Yorkville is another way to celebrate the winter in our city. Stroll around the park and see the wonderful ice sculptures showcased by talented and experienced artists. It takes them only one hour per block of ice but they know what they are doing! New stores have recently opened, including Starbucks right on the park.

We need to bundle up due to the freezing temperatures that are reaching the ones in the moon. Toronto can get to -40C and the moon is only -54C so we are not that far apart!

Brookfield Place, home of the Allen Lambert Galleria, designed by world renown Spanish architect Santiago #Calatrava is considered the most magnificent indoor public space in Toronto. Located in the very heart of Canada's Financial District and with direct access to Union Station, this monumental space is year round being used as a background to showcase fantastic art installations and exhibits that are always worth visiting. YourHomeInToronto would like to share this slide show with several of the art pieces we have managed to see over the past years.

Wishing all our friends a special Halloween Day!!!. It is a great moment to celebrate the joy of having children running around in our neighbourhoods filling the air with laughter and happiness and their tummies with nice treats.

It is lovely to see so many houses decorated with ghosts, pumpkins, spiders, black cats, tombstones and all sorts of terrifying monsters.

Let's keep a close eye on the little creatures and have a safe and joyful day!

NUIT BLANCHE TORONTO - A DARK CELEBRATION OF THE ARTS
Posted on Sun, 05 Oct 2014, 08:41:50 PM  in Urban Transformation,  Toronto Lifestyle,  Toronto Neighborhoods,  Recreation,  Bay Street Corridor,  Yonge Street Corridor
Tags:,  ,  ,    

The celebration of the arts during a whole night, starting at 6:00 PM and going all the way to sunrise has created a level of energy in the downtown core of Toronto like no other event at this time of the evening.

Rivers of people, usually in groups, wander through the streets with great expectation to see the free installations of hundreds of contemporary artists in several disciplines, from painting, acting, music, photography, sculpture, etc. who transform the city for the public's delight or dislike.

Some places are just packed and there is little space to move or breath but the crowd continues chasing the next show like a pilgrimage of the arts.

Though there is a lot of information posted online and in print media, often times it is necessary to go and check it out in person as the description or the images shown may not really represent the true dimension of the exhibit. Extended projects can be seen for another week including night installations of artists playing with light, colours, forms and effects.

The Garden of Renova, designed by the Centre of the Arts and Design at George Brown College was made entirely of coloured toilet paper and attracted a huge amount of visitors who mixed and mingle in the curvaceous forms recreated in the space.

The CanAmerican Energy Arts Team showcased a set of two large oil barrels united by a pipeline representing the energy independence (or dependence) of the two nations. A fountain pumping black gold accompanied by a multimedia landscape exhibit intended to have a different communication approach to the public.

Ghosts of our former selves with visitors faces painted by the artists that glowed in the dark.

Dress rehearsal with shadow boxes displaying the innermost moments of musicians who perform solo offering an interesting contrast in the dark of the night.

The human brain installation by influential Cuban artist Yoan Capote titled Open Mind, offers a space where visitors can walk underneath the metal labyrinth and interact with each other regardless of faith, culture or political beliefs.
