"Red, Orange and Green"
This stainless steel tree, titled "Red, Orange and Green", was installed near the busy junction of Jarvis St and Mt Pleasant Rd in 1992. Created by renowned Canadian artist Michael Snow, the title refers to both the colours of neighbouring traffic lights and to the reflected colours of the surrounding trees through our changing seasons. 14 m high and composed of 3 intersecting panels, it has an assortment of shapes cut out of the steel including one of Snow's famous 'walking woman' silhouettes. I took this pic 2 hours ago at lunchtime when you can see that we had beautiful sunny weather and people were out and about everywhere!
