The CBC has a neat article that examines the state of Canadian art that tackles how we look at the environment. Art is so fun!
Anyone whoâ€™s driven down Torontoâ€™s Don Valley Parkway has seen Noel Hardingâ€™s most famous public artwork. Elevated Wetlands consists of large, plastic, tooth-like sculptures that serve as planters for wetland vegetation. In addition to fashioning whimsical, inverted storage sheds that act as birdhouses (A Chirp), Harding has recently moved into full-scale environmental planning with a project called Green Corridor. This collaboration with University of Windsor visual arts professor Rod Strickland will see the gradual construction of a two-kilometre â€œregenerative green zoneâ€ surrounding the Ambassador Bridge, which connects Windsor and Detroit. The corridor will feature numerous science and art projects, including wind turbines, â€œbotanical interventions,â€ pedestrian walkways and water gardens.
