Transit Art

Each of the streetcar stops along St Clair Ave W has public art included in the structure of the shelter. This is the stop at St Clair and Avenue Rd, which is called Scenic Route and was designed by artist Carlo Cesta. I think I will go back in the summer when the leaves are out on the trees to see if the metal work, which is meant to suggest ivy, shows up a bit more.

Nice idea, though I don't think I'd have thought of ivy if you hadn't told me!

I like that design. It has a fluid look to it.

Anthropologist Lewis Mumford said that great public art was one defining element of civilization. I am happy to see this at a light rail stop, the perfect way to get around a city.

I have always loved seeing public art and metal sculptures.

Public art really makes the space a little bit more special.

...public art certainly is a wonderful addition. I think that most things will look more inviting when it warms up. Thanks for sharing, take care.

That must have been hard to form through metal! I love it, reminds me of newly sprouted fern leaves :)

It's huge! Good for social distancing.

It works as is but I'll bet it will really stand out with leafy trees behind.

It'll need the background leafed out for that.

Interesting, and it's not blocking any views either!
