A live tour (via Google Meet) exploring the recent arrival of art and artifacts to the grounds of Guild Park & Gardens in east Toronto, atop the Scarborough Bluffs.
The return of public art marks the revitalization of a unique - and long-neglected – city landmark where "Art Meets Nature." Community advocacy played a large role in Guild Park's renaissance. This Jane's Walk highlights:
• hand carved works ranging from saints (St. Francis) to royalty (Queen Victoria)
• a rarely-seen sculpture by Sorel Etrog (1980s)
• architectural features outside Guild Park's Clark Centre for The Arts – the soon-to-open home for public art programs and artists.
