The Don River Valley Park Art Program Presents: Built!

Co-presented by Evergreen with the City of Toronto and TRCA, the Don River Valley Park Art is a series of temporary, site-specific public art projects sited along the Lower Don River, curated by Kari Cwynar.

From December 2018 through October 2019, Evergreen’s Don River Valley Park Art Program partners with New York’s Socrates Sculpture Park to present an outdoor exhibition by Virginia Overton. On view for a year, the Toronto iteration of Built is spread across two sites. Three of the exhibition’s original sculptures have been installed on the Lower Don trail, to be joined by a new work made in Toronto. Overton has also installed the latest in her series of lightbox signs at the Evergreen Brick Works site, overlooking the quarry.
