Legacy Art Project... Inspired by Terry Fox

A public art + landscape project inspired by Terry Fox.

The Legacy Art Project will build a permanent public art and landscape installation inspired by Terry Fox’s legacy. It will be located on the waterfront at Queen’s Quay West at Spadina Avenue on a portion of the site adjacent to the renowned Toronto Music Garden.

The Legacy Art Project is built on the spirit of courage, determination, and action that Terry Fox embodied. The art and landscape design - which will be revealed in a juried public art competition - will create a setting to inspire visitors, ignite passion, spark action and create impact.

We see this project not only honouring our heritage, but looking to the future. The Legacy Art Project is a not for profit corporation working with City of Toronto, Toronto Foundation and Toronto Parks & Trees as well as a community of philanthropists, planners, architects and dedicated volunteers.

Design competition launches Fall 2018.
Project completion Fall 2020.

Jacquelyn is engaged as the Manager of Strategy & Operations for the Legacy Art Project.
