SPOTTED BY: TownieBrit-JiverGirl (top) and cookedphotos (bottom), from the Torontoist Flickr pool.

WHERE: Brookfield Place’s Allen Lambert Galleria.

WHEN: Earlier this week.

WHAT: Brookfield Place is known for putting interesting art installations in its central atrium. This one, by Vancouver-based artist Scott Massey, consists of about 3,000 anodized aluminum rods all standing in rows. It’s called “Enclosed Field,” and it’s supposed to evoke Vincent Van Gogh’s paintings of wheat fields—though that’s not the first association we would have made. Even so, there’s something plantlike about the whole thing that we enjoy. It’s on display until April 19.
