Baycrest Brain Project Proud Artist
Selected Artist for the 2020 Brain Project!
I'm proud to announce that my brain sculpture proposed design is one of the chosen artworks for The Baycrest Brain Project in 2020. Before the coronavius shutdowns in Toronto, I received my blank brain sculpture and am starting work on the artwork. Fortunately the Brain Project is not impacted by the COVID-19 closures and shutdowns (unlike most of my other planned art shows and events). My brain artwork will be revealed by Baycrest along with the other selected artists. Once Baycrest shares my brain artwork, I'll share here on my Art Blog so stay tuned to see my brain sculpture reveal. The brain sculptures will be on view in Nathan Phillips Square outside of Toronto City Hall, in July and August. My sculpture, along with those of the other chosen artists, will also be moved to other public spaces in Toronto later in the fall. In case you were wanted to know more, The Yogen Früz Brain Project is a city-wide Toronto art exhibit with "exciting, thought-provoking works of art that raise awareness about brain health and critical funding for research at Baycrest for Alzheimer’s and related dementias." You can read more about this exciting, public art competition and show on the Brain Project website. The Yogen Früz Braing Project has been running for over 5 years and 50 artists are selected each year through a juried art process.
