DTAH is thrilled to be short-listed with Toronto based artist Jon Sasaki for the Legacy Art Project competition. The Legacy Art Project, working with the City of Toronto, will build a permanent public art and landscape installation on Toronto's waterfront inspired by Terry Fox’s legacy. This public space initiative is dedicated to the spirit of courage, determination, and action that Terry Fox embodied. The five short-listed artist-led teams are:
• Kenneth Lum with Space2Place
• Jon Sasaki with DTAH
• Luis Jacob and Adrian Blackwell with Jane Hutton Landscape Architect
• Maxwell Stephens with North Design Office
• Myfanwy MacLeod with Hapa Collaborative
The short-listed teams were selected by the Legacy Art Project Jury from a long list of 40 “Expressions of Interest” submissions, led by seasoned Art Consultant and art expert Rebecca Carbin, Principal of Art + Public Unltd. The teams final creations will be revealed to the public in January 2019. The Jury will then determine the winning artist-led design that will find its home on the picturesque waterfront site located between the Music Garden and the Spadina wetlands.
