Scene: Eyes on City Hall

WHERE: City Hall

WHEN: Monday, July 9

WHAT: As part of an ongoing series of projects organized by, the windows of councillors’ offices at City Hall have been plastered with enormous, blown-up images of the eyes of new Canadian citizens. (We won’t quote from the artists’ statement, but you can imagine all the stuff about seeing through the eyes of others, and the value of bringing new perspectives to government.) The installation, called “Fresh Eyes,” will officially debut at 12:30 p.m. today, in celebration of Pan Am/Parapan Am Day, which marks exactly three years until Toronto will host the 2015 Pan Am Games. The eyes will stay up until July 30. The anticipated best viewing time is said to be at dusk tonight, when councillors’ office lights will be on.
