After a successful inaugural year, Ice Breakers is returning to Toronto's Waterfront. The Waterfront BIA has again enlisted WinterStations Inc. to bring five temporary, public art installations to various sights between Bathurst St. and Yonge St. for five weeks, commencing February 03, 2018.
For Ice Breaker's second year the theme is 'Constellation'. This can be interpreted in various ways, but we are hoping to see work that is challenging, while also accessible, reminding the public that public art can be fun and engaging. Artists may choose to converse with the winter constellations of the Northern Hemisphere, playing with astrology, mythology, history and with stellar form and earthly representation.
As always, the intention is to bring colour, warmth and activity to the water's edge, inviting people out of their buildings to take a winter walk along the waterfront and appreciate the unique Toronto landscape at this time of year.
