Magic, Luck and Friendship in #Toronto

@ArtsBrookfield has brought a humourous inflatable art installation to the long hall of the Allen Lambert Galleria with Starburst by @FriendswithYou. The big round, white ball has a cute face and is punctuated with a collection of colourful beach balls and tubes, reminding me of a startled blowfish that had picked up a few pieces of jewelry while looking for a mate. It made me smile on a winter February day, full of sun and hope that Spring is around the corner.
The exhibition is by the Friends With You Los Angeles based art collective artists Samuel Borkson and Arturo Sandoval III who like to promote the message of 'Magic, Luck and Friendship'. The hanging ball of fun will be at Brookfield Place from February 26 to March 15, 2013 (9am to 9pm).
"For its winter 2013 exhibition, Brookfield Place is pleased to present Starburst by FriendsWithYou, a visual arts collective based in Los Angeles. This smiling, dynamic sculpture will fill Allen Lambert Galleria with Magic, Luck and Friendship through its playful presence. Starburst will shower unbridled joy on all who pass beneath it and lift the spirits of all who engage with it. Commissioned by Luminato, Toronto Festival of Arts and Creativity, Starburst premiered in Brookfield's Bay Adelaide Centre in June 2010."
