The vision for 88 Scott : "These are the dreamers, the planners, the creators. ... In the earliest planning stages of 88 Scott, fifteen of the country's leading architects, planners and developers were invited to collaborate in a unique process. Their mandate was to create a bold vision for an exceptional, new landmark condominium building..."
In keeping with this creative approach, art by nine local i2i artists was reproduced in large format and presented on hoarding panels (divided by inspirational quotations). The idea was for the developer to support local talent while beautifying the site during the construction phase of development. The images were chosen to represent the many facets of life in the immediate community: green space, culture, recreation, shopping, entertainment etc.
Over the coming weeks we'll bring you pics of the other panels, but we start today with Thom Sevalrud's. It's fantastic to see the art at this size! If you have a chance, pop down and check out the larger-than-life art at 88 Scott in the heart of downtown Toronto. To see more of Thom's art go here.
