Winter Stations is now embarking on its fifth year, again opening an international design competition to bring temporary public art installations to The Beaches for an exhibition to celebrate Toronto’s winter waterfront landscape. This year we are hoping to include up to six lifeguard stands, including an additional two by invited post-secondary institutions, to be exhibited at Woodbine Beach at the western end of the beach bordering Lake Ontario in the Beach Community. These utilitarian structures are to be used as the armature for temporary installations, which will need to be able to withstand the rigours of Toronto winter weather. The exhibition is to run February 18 to April 1, 2019.
