Legacy Art Project... Inspired by Terry Fox



Jacquelyn West is a proud member of the Steering Committee for The Legacy Art Project. Our group 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 by artist Jon Sasaki and DTAH 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 completed in Fall 2018. Our final design was selected by jury in Spring 2019. Project completion and ribbon cutting is planned for Fall 2020.

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