A few years ago I happened upon this sculpture outside the MaRS building.From startups to scaleups, MaRS offers a range of services that help tech founders grow their companies and create meaningful innovation: solving real problems for real people. We work with hundreds of companies across the country, turning breakthrough ideas into products and services with global impact.
Of course, it's an Abernethy, click on Abernethy in the tags/labels below this post to see more of her work. She has done many famous Canadians.
Drs. James Till and Ernest McCulloch, the pioneers of stem cell science, have been honoured for their achievements with a sculpture located outside of the MaRS building in Toronto. The art piece, by Ontario sculptor Ruth Abernethy, was unveiled September 2017 during the grand opening of the Centre for Advanced Therapeutic Cell Technologies.
There is a duplicate sculpture in Vancouver BC.

Click here for Pride murals in 2014. These murals are still there.We enter Step 2 of reopening on June 30 a few days earlier than planned.
To enter step two, the province needed to have 70 per cent of adults with one dose of COVID-19 vaccine and 20 per cent with two doses for at least two weeks. As of June 23, more than 76 per cent of Ontarians 18 and older have had one dose and more than 29 per cent have had two doses.
Ontario has actually surpassed the step three vaccination targets of 25 per cent of eligible adults fully vaccinated, but the province would remain in step 2 for a period of 21 days “to allow the most recent vaccinations to reach their full effectiveness and to evaluate any impacts of moving to Step Two on key public health and health care indicators,” the government said.
UPDATE: Canada extending restrictions on non-essential international travel until July 21.
The Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund (DWF) was established to honour the legacies of Chanie Wenjack and Gord Downie.
Chanie Wenjack was a 12-year-old Anishinaabe boy from Ogoki Post on the Marten Falls Reserve in Northern Ontario. He was forced to attend the Cecilia Jeffrey Residential School at the age of 9. In 1966, he escaped from the school and died while trying to make the 600 km journey home to his family. Gord Downie, singer, songwriter and driving creative force behind The Tragically Hip, was introduced to Chanie’s story later in his life and used his final years on earth to raise awareness about Chanie and the 150,000 Indigenous children and youth in Canada who were forced to attend residential schools.
Collective Arts Brewing invites artists and musicians to submit their work in bi-yearly Calls for Art. Since the first art and music call in May 2013 over 16,000 submissions have been received from artists and musicians representing over 40 countries. Each artist is paid to appear on the labels. Collective Arts does not own the art but is allowed to use it on cans and bottles for a limited period of time. To date, Collective Arts Brewing have produced and compensated over 650 artists and musicians for appearing on limited edition cans and bottle labels.
The Kentucky mule is a bourbon-based spin on the Moscow mule, a classic cocktail from the 1940’s. Apparently it was invented as a ploy to sell more vodka, ginger beer and copper mugs! Well, we don't have any copper mugs but have everything else.
Fill the mug or glass with ice and top with ginger beer.

Also taken by John has he walked by the Humber River.
The concrete wall that separates the Humber River bike trail from the Humber Sewage Treatment Plant has always had graffiti on it, but now a coordinated effort between streetARToronto and Anishnaabe artist Philip Cote and his associates has led to a blend of Woodland School painting and modern abstract tagging.
