Public Art in the City
Make a day out of absorbing the over 200 City-owned pieces of outdoor public art in Toronto. Installed throughout parks, streets, squares, and subway stations, these art pieces can be woven seamlessly into Toronto’s fabric or stand out as an arresting detail or event. Not limited to visual art, the Public Artworks can be aural, functional, visual, and inspirational. The earliest piece in the collection, The Canadian Volunteers Memorial, has stood since 1870. New works are added every year. Visit the Public Art and Monuments Collection Website for an interactive map of the 200+ art locations.
