Terry Fox legacy art project grand opening

On Oct. 5, a Terry Fox Legacy Art Project celebrated its completed installation in the Toronto Music Garden, in the city’s Harbourfront neighbourhood. Designed by artist Jon Sasaki and landscape architecture consultants DTAH, the centrepiece of the project features three, one-story-high sculpted granite slabs. From the west end of the installation, the slabs appear as a single figure: the iconic silhouette of Terry Fox in mid-stride.

The event was attended by numerous media representatives and dignitaries, including Toronto Mayor Olivia Chow, Deputy Mayor Ausma Malik, Jack Winberg from Waterfront Toronto, Terry Fox’s younger brother Darrell, James Roche from DTAH and Craig Jarvis, president and chair of Legacy Art Project Toronto.

Next spring, the Green Cities Foundation is excited to help #GreenMyCity by supplying and installing plant material in and around this magnificent project.
