  • The Bentway 250 Fort York Boulevard Toronto, ON, M5V 3K9 (map)

The Bentway presents WATERLICHT, a monumental public art intervention designed by acclaimed Dutch artist Daan Roosegaarde.

This large-scale light installation illustrates the universal power, poetry and danger of water. Waterlicht is a dream landscape created through the imaginative use of LEDs, special software and lenses. Larger-than-life, cascading waves of blue light will soar underneath the Gardiner Expressway, simulating a virtual flood and calling attention to rising water levels along Toronto’s shoreline.

The Watermark Project joins Waterlicht, to share Watermark stories from Toronto’s waterfront.

Date: October 12 to October 14 from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Location: The Bentway, 250 Fort York Blvd., Toronto, ON
Admission: Free

Due the unique nature of the installation, WATERLICHT can only be viewed after sunset, 7 p.m. - 11 p.m.
