Public Art at the City of Toronto
Located throughout the City of Toronto, are over 200 City-owned pieces of public art and historical monuments. Situated in city parks, subway stations, and on the grounds of municipal buildings, these works add both a historic and artistic element to the urban landscape. They are diverse in medium, ranging from bronze and masonry sculptures, to aluminum, polyester resin, stainless steel and concrete. The earliest piece in the collection, The Canadian Volunteers Memorial, dates back to 1870, while at Dawes Road one of the newer acquisitions, Dawes Crossing by artist, Noel Harding can be found.
The Toronto Cultural Services is committed to encouraging the development of Public Art and to maintaining its outdoor Public Art and Monuments Collection.
