A new ‘Toronto sign’ popped up over the weekend on the city’s west end waterfront.

According to CBC, the “sculpture is the handiwork of local artists and best friends, Thelia Sanders-Shelton and Julie Ryan.”

Situated in Humber Bay Park, the sign is made from recovered driftwood from a nearby beach. The artists told CBC the (inevitably) temporary ode to Toronto took five days to complete.

We’d say it was more than worth it.

So while you can head down to Nathan Phillips Square any day of the year to get a selfie in front of Toronto’s most famous sign, we suggest you switch it up this week and show this reclaimed masterwork some love.
