Now in its second year, temporary winter art exhibit Ice Breakers is returning to Toronto’s waterfront.

Organized by Winter Stations and The Waterfront Business Improvement Area (WBIA), Ice Breakers will provide the city with five temporary wintertime art installations from January 19 to February 25.

This year, visitors will discover five new wintertime art installations located on Queens Quay from Harbourfront Centre to the Toronto Music Garden.

This year, the Waterfront BIA hosted an international design competition for the selection of five artist teams to provide installations for five unique sites.

Each of the winning art pieces was inspired by the stars in support of 2018’s theme, “constellation.”

Here’s what you’ll be able to see this year:
