Public Art: Toronto Winter Stations 2016

If you are planning to do something cool this March, I highly recommend taking a visit to the Toronto Beaches to see the Winter Stations Design Exhibit. It's an amazing display of public art along the waterfront landscape. The structures are located near the lifeguard stands and must be able to withstand our Toronto wintery weather.  The weather has been crazy lately (snow, no snow, snow, no snow), but I went a couple of days ago with a friend who was willing to brave the aftermath of a 20cm snowstorm to see the exhibit.  

We were not disappointed.  To truly enjoy Winter Stations, you must see it firsthand. So if you plan on visiting, do not read this post until AFTER you've been. It's worth it.

Winter Stations is set up across Balmy, Kew and Ashbridges Bay beaches. Here's a map of the exhibits.

I loved each exhibit.  They were all so unique and functional.  I love art that is touchable and accessible.
The exhibits are up until March 20, 2016 so go see it while you still can!
