Toronto's Canoe Landing Park and Public Art Installations ReviewA few weeks ago I enjoyed a walking art tour organized by MOCCA and led by Betty Ann Jordan from Art InSite and Ben Mills from Public Art Management. The tour explored various public art installations near the Gardiner expressway that included several installations designed by Douglas Coupland. I have always known that Toronto has alot of public art (I walk by several every day), but I really had no idea of the amount of amazing art by world renowned artists are on display for free, throughout the city.

P.s!: MOCCA hosts several events throughout the year that are open to the general public. And if you want to join a walking tour to learn more about Toronto, Jane's Walk hosts several walking tours throughout the year and their annual Jane's Walk Festival runs May 1 - 3, 2015 with thousands of walks in hundreds of communities across the globe!
