BigArtTO in Christie Pits

The big bowl in Toronto known as Christie Pits Park had a number of evening baseball games as well as one of the two current BigArtTO exhibitions. The art exhibition is put on by the City of Toronto as they try to bring back some public culture during these stressful times of Covid, just remember to social distance. These two specific works are being shown October 7-10, 2020 from 7:30pm - 10:30pm, while the program runs from September 16 to December 5. Online//Offline 1 is the one shown in this post and these art installations would be right at home during the annual Nuit Blanche.
