Toronto Sculpture Garden
This small downtown park which opened in 1981 is a partnership between the City of Toronto which owns and operates the park and the Louis L. Odette family whose foundation funds and administers the exhibitions. They have become a leader in commissioning contemporary sculpture by hosting 2 installations a year. This summer's installation is "Beside Myself" by Ted Bieler and consists of a series of benches scattered about the park each with a cast aluminum head occupying 1/2 of the bench and will be replaced in Oct with the next commission. It seems to be a popular resting place for tourists.
