Play Me I'm Yours: Piano for the Bahamas at Union Station

A prime location!  Which among the artists was fortunate enough to get Union friggin' Station as the location for their piano?  The place where 200,000 Torontonians and tourists pass by every day was ultimately won by artist Ward Minnis, creator of the piano for the Bahamas.  

Bright blue and turquoise, the piano sits among the columns, a welcome bit of colour to the stone walls and the city scape surrounding Front Street.  

The artist, Ward Minnis is a professional graphic designer and fine artist born in the Bahamas.  Between the island and Canada, he's got loads of education and experience and offers a variety design and arts related services.

The Play Me I'm Yours project is unfortunately over now, but stay tuned for more information about the artists behind these works of art around Toronto.

Also stay tuned for my ongoing search for local galleries, new artists and arts and cultural events around Toronto.  

Bon soir,
