Amazing new art exhibit in Toronto centres around the wrongfully convicted

Nov 15 2016, 5:30 am

A free, thought-provoking art installation downtown Toronto hopes to raise awareness and funds for Innocence Canada.

Renowned sculptor and artist Michael Murphy has created an impactful installation at 130 Adelaide Street West. Murphy is known for his intellectually challenging and technically intriguing artwork. Known for his Gun Country display, Murphy is in Toronto in support of Innocence Canada. 

Murphy’s Toronto installation is centered on portraying the moments lost by one wrongly convicted individual.

Innocence Canada is a non-profit organization dedicated to identifying, advocating for, and helping the exoneration of individuals convicted of a crime they did not commit. Since 1993, Innocence Canada has helped obtain 21 of the 26 exonerations in Canada’s history, freeing individuals who together spent more than 190 years incarcerated for crimes they did not commit.

Check out the installation this week.
