Photographer STEVEN EVANS took in the event on Kew, Scarborough and Balmy beaches on a perfect holiday Monday. This year, designers transformed lifeguard stands into works of art and the kids certainly seemed to approve.
LISA ROCHON, Jury Chair for the competition, led visitors on a tour of the installations.
Among the eight creations this year – ‘NORTH’ by Studio Perch, MONTREAL
Mayor JOHN TORY showed up to take in the festivities.
“COLLECTIVE MEMORY” by Mario Garcia, BARCELONA & Andrea Govi, MILAN
One of the highlights – “BEACON” by Joao Araujo & Joanna Correia Silva, PORTO. It’s best seen at night when a shaft of light points skyward.
The Beaches are easy to reach by public transport. Take the #501 streetcar eastbound to Neville Park from the Queen Street subway station. Alight at Woodbine or Leuty and walk south from there.
