Lyrical poem in Riverside

Posted on June 22, 2014 in Blog, Public Art, Riverside

Have a seat. Lean back on the grass and look up. On the edge of Jimmie Simpson Park on Queen Street East you’ll find the third of a three-part art installation by Eldon Garnet called Time: and a Clock.

There are four posts each bearing a word on a pennant that make up a lyrical poem.

Coursing, Disappearing, Trembling, Returning

The first stage of the installation is further west above the Queen Street viaduct over the Don Valley and reads, This river I step in is not the river I stand in”

The second stage is at Queen and Broadview and is four expression dealing with time imbedded in the sidewalk. One on each corner of the intersection.
