BigArtTO at Princess Park Clock Tower

Presented with OCAD University

Wednesday November 3 - Saturday November 6, 6:15 pm to 9:15 pm nightly.

OCAD University Student Animators will design site-specific artwork for the Princess Park Clock Tower beside the Empress Walk. The structure was originally built as part of North York's Ivan M. Nelson Fire Station. The structure was torn down in 1989, but the hose tower was preserved.

OCAD University, the largest and most comprehensive art, design and media university in Canada, encourages students to explore animation across disciplines. This collaboration with BigArtTO provides opportunities for students to explore media art, graphic design, drawing and critical practices as they relate to the moving image, interactivity and the virtual. The focus is on innovation, experimentation, imagination, creativity and critical thinking.
