Peeled Pavement art by Corktown Common

In some small towns people often joke that in the evening they roll up the sidewalks because no one is out and about. You can't really say that about Toronto because something is always happening in the Six, so they decided to make the sidewalk literally art that you can sit on.
Near Corktown Common along Mill Street there are several sidewalk installations where the sidewalk is curled up with a light where the sidewalk would normally rest. In the exposed concrete (cast in bronze) where you would sit is the outlines of industrial artifacts that might have been found in the area. The pieces were designed by artist Jill Anhold and were completed in 2015.
