Winter Stations

Lake Ontario love affair.

What do you do with large swaths of public beach when you live in a city that has winter for what feels like half the year? Build experiential art installations around the lifeguard stations! For a third year, design exhibition Winter Stations has invited artists and designers to dream up installations to keep watch over the beaches that hug Toronto’s East End.

The shores of Lake Ontario in winter are equal parts wind and rock, but that never stops us from walking its edge. The addition of the Winter Stations between February and March, the deepest stretch of winter, turns the frigid beaches into inviting dreamscapes for Torontonians to explore and only adds to our ongoing love affair with this Great Lake.
