TD Northern Lamps at TD Centre Toronto

A touch of the far north skies have been captured in a light installation at King and Bay Street. Located in the King Street courtyard, the artscape shining green, blue and pink at night time helps to celebrate Canada's indigenous experiences with the lights. The display and the stories will be on display at Toronto-Dominion Centre until May 30, 2018.

"The TD Northern Lights Installation invites colleagues and passersby to experience Inuit artists' interpretation of this this natural wonder in downtown Toronto," says Kerry Peacock, Executive Vice President, Day to Day Banking, Investing and Transformation and Chair, Indigenous Peoples Committee, TD Bank Group.
"The TD Northern Lamps is a newly installed art experience outside the TD Centre, at King and Bay in Toronto. The installation tells the personal stories of Inuit artists working in Cape Dorset, Nunavut and their experience with the Northern Lights. Known for its vibrant art scene and renowned artists, Cape Dorset (Kinngait in Inuktitut) sits off the southwestern tip of Baffin Island. With a population of about 1,400, the hamlet is 2,300 kilometers from Toronto. It is a frequent trek for William Huffman of Dorset Fine Arts (a division of the West Baffin Eskimo Co-Operative), who helps promote the art and artists in the region."
