See rainbows of light at Art Stop #3 during the Redpath Waterfront Trail!

Best seen at night, Light Keeper projects waves of rainbow light with a moon clock that responds to shifting winds in the night sky. Similar to lighthouses, the installation speaks to light as a medium for sending messages across vast dark spaces.

Presented by @waterfront.to, the installation was created by Caitlind r.c. Brown, Wayne Garrett, and Studio North.

Come see it in person in 2 days!

Watch art come to life!

Anishinaabe artist @que_rock_ is transforming a blank wall into a masterpiece called Nbii Dodem (Water clans) by creating a graffiti mural, presented by @bbishopairport, in partnership with @nieuportaviation.

The mural is divided into four panels, each telling a story of water as a healer, a teacher, a protector, and a source of life.

Walk the trail from September 17 to October 3 and see @que_rock_ paint everyday from 10-4, weather depending.
