Experience new glass artwork at Yonge and College

Event Details

This event finished on 31 December 2020

Experience downtown Toronto’s latest public art installation from developer Canderel, brought to life by internationally-acclaimed artist Catherine Widgery.

Called Urban Fabric, it is a glass artwork that captures sunlight and radiates and reflects two colours back, creating a magical light feature on the sidewalk below.

The artwork is made from dichroic glass which has a micro layer that filters out wavelengths of light so that they bounce back in reflection while allowing others to pass through. When there’s more light behind the glass than in front, we see the reflected surroundings through a veil of colour. When there is more light in front of the glass than behind, the artwork reflects ambient movement as if seen through a dusky mirror.
