Dupont Subway Platform


It is a dreary rainy day here so time for an indoor shot. The Dupont subway station platforms on the Spadina line have 2 enormous glass mosaics which face each other across the tracks. Titled "Spadina Summer Under All Seasons", by artist James Sutherland, they were installed in 1978 and continue to cheer the soul as you wait for a train. There are also several more flowers upstairs in the station.

Very beautiful mosaic!
I love the way that subway stations are used as galleries, here it's possible to see amazing creations too. ;-)

I've never been in that station and clearly I've missed something very nice!

It's good to see art in the subway in Toronto, I saw the subway in Lisbon, it's amazing, each station has a different style of tiles. I was taking a photo and a security person came running over, "No not permitted!" M
