The Brain Project coming to Toronto

Update: The project launched 25 April 2016 with Paul Godfrey, Ben Mulroney and Mayor John Tory. See my post of the event here.

This summer will be filled with brain sculptures as Thierry Guetta, also known as Mr. Brainwash, will be part of the public art installation to benefit studies of aging and brain health at Baycrest Health Sciences. Over 50 designers and artists will display their works beginning on June 3, 2016 at Nathan Phillips Square, The Distillery District and many other locations spread out throughout the city.

The exhibition will be presented by TELUS and features artists that applied online to be included in the art event. “The Brain Project is going to be an incredible installation: so many different forms of expression on display in the streets of Toronto,” said Mr. Brainwash. “The connection between art and brain health is a fascinating topic and I am honoured to be a part of this message.”

Also participating will be Karim Rashid, named by Time magazine as the "most famous industrial designer in all the Americas."
