August 2017 - Toronto ON

The Rogers Centre, originally named SkyDome, is a multi-purpose stadium situated just southwest of the CN Tower. Opened in 1989 on the former Railway Lands, it is home to the Toronto Blue Jays of Major League Baseball (MLB).



The venue was noted for being the first stadium to have a fully retractable motorized roof, as well as for the 348-room hotel attached to it, with 70 rooms overlooking the field.


But I really wanted to highlight these sculptures!

The Audience – by Michael Snow is a collection of larger than life depictions of fans located above the northeast and northwest entrances. Painted gold, the sculptures show fans in various acts of celebration.

John St. entrance


Waver, Pointer, Oh No, V for Victory, Camera Man, Nose Thumber, Man and Boy




Peter St. entrance



Binoculars, Lady Pointer,  Ear Wagger, Clapper, Fatso, Thumbs Down, Muscle Man
