TORONTO sign, Nathan Phillips Square, Toronto, ON

This month, a new 3D TORONTO sign was installed at Nathan Phillips Square ... and Gord and I walked to it this afternoon to check it out.

A more durable replica of the original (installed in July 2015 for the Toronto 2015 Pan American/Parapan American Games), the sign is illuminated, stands 10-feet tall and features a designed vinyl wrap on the outer edges of the of its letters.

The current vinyl wrap is an artwork titled Patterns of the People, designed by Toronto artist Danilo Deluxo McCallum Opens to honour the United Nations International Decade for People of African Descent Opens in new window (IDPAD). The artwork is part of ArtworxTO: Toronto’s Year of Public Art 2021.
