FIRST SNOW STORM OF THE YEAR!!!
Posted on Mon, 02 Feb 2015, 05:23:42 PM  in Toronto Lifestyle,  Recreation,  Toronto Parks,  Leaside
Tags:,  ,    
We might as well enjoy the winter activities in the city. It is usually quite nice, calm and beautiful the scenery right after a snow storm. Great for taking the dog for a walk, the kids tobogganing or just getting fresh air. Leaside as many other neighbourhoods have plenty of fantastic areas to enjoy and they are just around the corner.

1 El centro de investigación y aprendizaje Peter Gilgan del Hospital de Niños Enfermos en la Calle Bay. Se destaca el volumen curvilíneo con pisos entrelazados por espacios comunes que promueven la cooperación entre los 260 científicos y sus 2000 proyectos sobre la salud infantil.

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.

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.

ALGONQUIN PARK - MARVELOUS FALL COLOURS
Posted on Wed, 01 Oct 2014, 06:40:07 PM  in Toronto Lifestyle,  Recreation,  Ontario Landmarks,  Toronto Getaways
Tags:,  ,  ,  ,  ,  ,  ,    

The changing of the colours during the Fall season in Algonquin Park is such a great and marvelous spectacle that is music for the eyes. There are two peaks in the colours, the first one is when the maple canopies turn red and then the leaves fall and the yellow ones show their beauty. 

Highway 60 is a sure place to look at the marvel of nature, though it gets tricky with so many drivers passing by at high speeds.

From Toronto is just over two hours to get there. Before entering the park there are two great places to enjoy the reflections on still waters so watch out for what catches your eye and imagination.

As pictures paint a thousand words, there is no need to describe this beauty. Just enjoy the first peak when red is the preferred colour!
