Artwork image for The Third Garden


The Third Garden, by artists Millie Chen and Warren Quigley, is a site-specific installation consisting of five cast iron seating forms, eight concrete pavers inlaid with cast bronze text, and landscaping. The couch forms are playful improvisations on a cliché associated with psychiatric care. The text in the pavers is based on oral and recorded histories of the former Lakeshore Psychiatric Hospital facilities on the Lakeshore Grounds, a prominent landmark setting in Etobicoke for more than 100 years.
