Toronto Winter Stations in the Beach 2023

The annual public design competition open to the world is centered around the lifeguard stations on the Beaches and is back starting on Family Day 2023.  There are 8 winning proposals for the exhibition that runs from February 20 to April 3 along the City of Toronto's Kew and Woodbine beaches in East York. There is no fee for visiting the art installations and many of the pieces are meant for interaction with the public and it is one way to get people out on the sandy beach in the middle of winter, although recent temperatures make it a very pleasant visit.
From their website "Winter Stations is a single-stage international design competition held annually in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Participants are tasked with designing temporary winter art installations which incorporate existing lifeguard towers spaced strategically across the city’s Kew and Woodbine beaches. The structures (not in use in the wintertime) are considered visual anchor points for the installations."
Looking into LIFE LINE
Winter Stations theme for 2023 is Radiance; "the quality or state of being radiant. Radiance is a powerful thing to harness, as it reflects brilliance, inner security, kindness, and gratitude – but it’s also unique in that it has a positive ripple effect from its origin. Radiance is beautiful in the way it spreads organically."
