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. Until March 27.
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.
