[PHOTO] Eight photos from a tour of Toronto’s Ice Breakers (#toicebreakers)
When I went down to the Lake Ontario shoreline last month to take in Ice Breakers, the Waterfront BIA’s winter public art, I should have known that the effects of the works would have needed a winter. In that the weather this winter really hasn’t been very winterish, I was let down. This is not the fault on the part of the artists and architects involved: Leeward Fleet, pictured in the first two photos, remained evocative despite the cold spring weather, I can see how the zebra-striped Incognito and the Icebox at HT0 Park would have worked with a bit of snow coverage, the two waving hands of Tailored Twins have an endearing whimsy, and Winter Diamonds would have been superb surrounded by a field of snow at Music Garden Park. It’s just that the weather let these works down.
