Why wait for summer to hit the beach? A new art exhibition is drawing visitors to Toronto’s waterfront until the end of March. Snow-dusted Woodbine beach is filled with the sounds of crashing waves and howling winds, not the typical backdrop for an art exhibit. But organizers say the changing environment adds to the experience. Now in its 7th year, Winter Stations features four giant art installations chosen from an impressive 273 submissions from around the world.
It’s the first time at Winter Stations for UK-based artists who go by the name iheartblob. Sasha Belitskaja and Shaun McCallum have created Noodle Feed, giant flexible noodles that can be reshaped with the help of others making it a collaborative experience. And in keeping with this year’s theme Beyond the 5 Senses, they’ve added an app where visitors share their experience online.
City Councillor Brad Bradford, a driving force behind the project, encourages Torontonians to visit this world class art from around the world. Winter Stations along Woodbine Beach runs until the end of March. For more information, visit
