Getting to and from work and home can be hectic.  Most of us use TTC or drive, and in doing so we miss much of what cyclists or pedestrians see clearly every day.  Did you know, for example, that a herd of “bunny dogs” romp on the boulevard at Wellington and John?  Or that Glenn Gould is amongst us, and invites us to join him on a bench to watch the world go by?  Where is Toronto’s newest wonder, created in China from 22 tons of stainless steel, and what message does it convey??

Memories of the city’s past and projections into our future are among the themes found in Toronto’s profusion of contemporary sculpture dotted around the city.

Come and join us on the ROMwalk fundraiser walk, “Hidden Treasures 2”, on June 20 and August 8.  We will examine these treasures and their creators up close and give you the opportunity to talk about them as well.  You’ll be surprised at some of the stories they tell!
