The Beaches have new art along its shores.
Winter Stations returns for its third-year, welcoming international designers to bring public art installations to Toronto’s beaches.
The new exhibits occupying Toronto’s waterfront landscape officially opens on Family Day, but those along the shores got a peak over the weekend. You’ll have a chance to see the exhibits until March 27.

Sculpture on Toronto beach. “Flotsam and Jetsam” by a team of architecture students from the University of Waterloo. . . . #winterstations #winterstations2017 #toronto #the6ix #beaches #thebeach #picoftheday #goldenhour #architecture #naturelove #longexposure #cityscape #landscape #landscapelovers #beautiful #breathtaking #lumix #GH4 #winter
| Flotsam & Jetsam | My favourite winter station by far, as the #plastic bottles that make up the fish highlights the realities of #plasticconsumption and its effects on aquatic biodiversity 🐟🦀🐋🦑. One in four fish ingest ocean plastic (as they commonly mistake plastic for food) and this will only increase as by 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean. Chemicals used to manufacture plastic can then accumulate in fish flesh. The bigger the fish/marine mammal, the higher the concentration of plastic they have in their bodies (a.k.a. bioaccumulation). I hope that a lot of people who visit this installation take something meaningful away from it. ♻️ Winter stations have been running for the past three years now in the Beaches of Toronto to bring more visitation to the area during the colder months. This winter station was designed by the University of Waterloo School of Architecture. #killconvenience #bemindful #sustainability
