It’s been a long time coming and the Faces of Regent Park permanent public artwork is now complete. You can check out a gang up of the portraits at this link and images of the installation by visiting the projects page of the website. A special thanks to all of the subjects for trusting me and sharing their time and their stories, The Planning Partnership, Clara Hargittay and the folks in Arts & Culture and Parks at the City of Toronto, Artscape Daniels Spectrum, Dinny Biggs, Svetlana Lavrentieva and Stadia. The birch panel studio works that form the basis for the outdoor installation will be on display until July 10 on the 2nd floor of the Daniels Spectrum, directly across the street from where the outdoor works reside.
