New Construction Hoarding at Anishnawbe Health construction site features art work by artist Luke Swinson
It’s now been over one year since the ground breaking at the future home of Anishnawbe Health, and the project is well underway. Recently, the construction site has been updated with beautiful hoarding featuring designs from Luke Swinson – a visual artist with Anishinaabe roots, and who is a member of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation. The construction hoarding also provides information on the project, the partners involved and recognizes donors to the Foundation who have helped us to move this project forward. If you are in the area of Cherry Street be sure to check it out!
In June, Waterfront Toronto announced the results of the competition for the public art project that will be part of the Indigenous Hub at the corner of Cherry and Mill Streets. An Indigenous Evaluation Panel working with Ryan Rice, Indigenous Public Art Curator at Waterfront Toronto, selected “In Equilibrium” by renowned Wendat artist Ludovic Boney. The sculpture will feature thousands of fire-coloured hanging stems under a mirrored surface, and a view to the sky, providing an invitation towards hope and healing.
