I shot this pic of artist Sorel Etrog's "Sunbird ll" a week and a half ago when wandering about Yorkville during the Icefest. Unfortunately, Etrog passed away last week at the age of 80. He has been a huge presence in Toronto since coming here in 1963 and one can find examples of his public art commissions all over the city. A sculpture centre is to open next year at Mount Sinai Hospital featuring 100 of his pieces, as a place of contemplation and peace for the patients and staff there. You can see a few of his pieces that I have shown by clicking on the Etrog label below.
