Get ready for some wintery Instagram shots.

A new set of winter art installations is about to take over 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 21 to February 26.

Three-dimensional, faceted hands standing three metres high; glowing, modular boxes from Denmark; and oversized, camouflaged massing models will each mark Toronto’s Waterfront on Queens Quay from Yonge Street to Bathurst Street.
