Fall 2018 Public Art Tour: Philip Cote

October 10 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free
Meet at the entrance of Fort York Visitor Centre
Register >>

The Bentway’s Fall 2018 season and public art exhibition, If, But, What If? explores what could be, what perhaps should be, and what may never be within our ever-evolving city. Looking back, what critical historical moments changed Toronto’s trajectory? Moving forward, what radical acts will help to shape the future for the city’s people, places, and more?

Join us each week in October (October 4, 10, 18, and 25) for a series of tours exploring selected works in the public art exhibition, If, But, What If?. Each tour will be led by a different local Torontonian – artists, designers, planners, community members and active urbanists – who will reflect on the artworks, The Bentway’s layered histories and potential futures, as well as the city itself. The tour leaders will lead participants throughout The Bentway and interpret the site and works based on their own expertise and interests. Topics may include Toronto’s built form, its natural resources, its networks of infrastructure as well as its many communities.
