Kylemore swings for charity
The generosity of Kylemore Communities’
consultants, trades and suppliers was in evidence
once again when the company held
its 9th Annual Kylemore Kares Charity
Golf Tournament at Angus Glen Golf Club in Markham in August.
Kylemore has hosted this event for nine consecutive years and to date has raised more than
$1.2 million dollars, which goes directly to charities.
“What’s foremost in our minds is to lend a hand to charities and non-profit groups
each year, and there’s no doubt that the need is great,” said Kylemore’s president Patrick
This year’s guest speaker was Ira Jacobs, of the Faculty of Kinesiology and Physical Education
at the University of Toronto, who expressed his appreciation to Kylemore, O’Hanlon,
members of the Stollery family and attendees for their contributions to the fundraising campaign
for the new Goldring Centre for High Performance Sport, which opened in 2014.
The event was also honoured by the attendance of two Canadian women Olympians —
Vicky Sunohara and Jayna Hefford – whose hockey team, the University of Toronto Varsity
Blues, is also a recipient of funding from the tournament.
The art of change presented at Art Shoppe site
As the design-driven Art Shoppe Lofts +
Condos prepares for construction, Freed
Developments and Capital Developments
have installed construction hoarding at the
iconic Yonge Street site. In keeping with the
project’s commitment to the art of change,
the award-winning developers have partnered with The PATCH (Pubic Art Through
Construction Hoarding) Project — a public arts agency that improves the urban experience
by transforming urban spaces into ongoing curated exhibitions — to turn the site’s construction
hoarding into a six-panel art exhibition.
Freed and Capital are working with The PATCH Project to create a mixed-media exhibit
featuring the work of local and internationally-renowned artist Chikonzero Chazunguza. Six
of Chazunguza’s works have been selected to complement “the art of change” vision that
Freed and Capital have embodied for the Art Shoppe development.
The art installation, titled “In the City,” is prominently displayed across approximately
3,300 square feet of construction hoarding.
"Watson's Dream' joins Toronto commuters"
A bold public sculpture by Torontobased
artist Clare Scott-Taggart looks
to be striding toward Wilson Station.
Located on the southwest corner of
Wilson Avenue and Tippet Road in
North York, “Watson’s Dream” emerges
from the ground with kinetic force into
the very busy commuter corridor.
The sculpture was commissioned
by Brandy Lane Homes and project
partners Wise Group and Shiplake
Management Company for The
Standing 21-feet tall and composed of
21 spun stainless steel spheres, “Watson’s
Dream” is named after James Watson,
the scientist who first described the
structure of DNA. The sculpture is a
stylized DNA strand representing the
rapidly growing Downsview area.
“It is about how we, the community’s
DNA, come together to create a whole,”
Scott-Taggart said. “The single green
sphere contrasted against the other black
and white spheres represents the individual
within the greater community.”
