Friday photos – the city is a gallery

While Toronto has an assortment of very fine galleries and a bevy of smaller galleries, I’m convinced the whole city is a gallery.  And I don’t simply mean the architecture, the built form of the city or the design of the urban landscape (which is a beautiful thing on its own).

I mean, quite literally, the city is a gallery.  Art is everywhere in the public space, making for intriguing and lovely spaces.  The other day I spent a few hours biking around my end of the city and it took a few hours to cover just blocks of the west end because I couldn’t stop snapping one shot after another of all the street art.  Too much city; too little time.

A few images, then, of the public gallery of Toronto (more to come since this is only the west side).

    Phil, those shots are great. You don’t see any of that when driving around TO on the 400s, under on the Gardiner, or even through on the Boulevards. Toronto really is a great city with loads of culture and creativity. Thanks for snapping some of it up.

    I love those examples of art! What talent there is in the city. It would be interesting to meet the artists.
