Monsters located along newly re-opened Lower Don Trail

Joanna Lavoie of the Beach Mirror has written about stone sculptures along the Lower Don Trail in a meadow north of the Bloor Viaduct. Access to these works has become easier and safer with the re-opening today of the Lower Don Trail by Mayor Tory and Councillors Wong-Tam and McMahon, who each represent parts of the valley at this point. As reported by Ms Lavoie. the large-scale figures depict gargoyles that adorn buildings in downtown Toronto. The display carries a dramatic name: Monsters for Beauty, Permanence and Individuality. They are by acclaimed Omaskêko Cree artist Duane Linklater. There is more here as well as a video but the proprietary player seems a bit rocky.
