Right now there are a few pieces on display; Wind Ensemble (pictured above) and Holding Space (below) with descriptions found on the Bentway's website.

May 24 to October 6: Holding Space
"Nnenna Okore uses scaffolding, pipe, and Ankara – a versatile and iconic African fabric that embodies a deep sense of identity and community – to create a new space for human connection. Vibrant fabric hues weave around the Gardiner’s hard edges, softening the concrete infrastructure."

May 24 to October 6: Wind Ensemble
"Brightly coloured windsocks dance overhead while windchimes echo throughout, picking up the movement of the wind and the energy of the city. Toronto-based artist Heather Nicol invites you to add your voice to this chorus, to pause and connect to your surroundings and one another."
