Toronto got its latest addition of public art over the weekend.

Now in its third year, Ice Breakers winter exhibit includes five temporary installations along Queens Quay, drawing people to Toronto’s waterfront during the cold, winter months.

Organized by Winter Stations and The Waterfront Business Improvement Area (WBIA) and PortsToronto, Ice Breakers’ installations will be set up along the water from Yonge Street to Bathurst Street until February 24.

This year’s exhibition features four winning installations, which emerged from an international design competition. Teams from Hamburg, Germany and Athens, Greece were joined by two local groups, as well as a student installation contributed by Ryerson University.

Each of the designs responds to this year’s exhibition theme “Signal Transmission.”

If you haven’t been down to Queens Quay yet, you can see what opening weekend looked like below.
