A permanent exhibition of sculptures by Toronto artist Harley Valentine has recently been unveiled in Scarborough, adding new form and colour to the forecourt of a rental high-rise residence.
This permanent installation, entitled The 30 Carabob Quartet, features four large-scale monochromatic works that stand in contrast to the residential towers surrounding them, creating a dialogue between mid-century design, urban landscapes, and contemporary sculpture.
The works are set in a new sculpture garden with planting and fixture design by Janet Rosenberg and Studio. The garden is part of an overall building and site renewal effort, designed by David Binder Architect, to create a dialogue with surrounding city streets by way of enhancing the pedestrian experience.
This collaboration between a building owner and artist is a great example of the range of Tower Renewal efforts going on around the GTA. For those interested in seeking out the installation, 30 Carabob Court can be found near the intersection of Birchmount and Sheppard Avenue, Scarborough.
