Behind the Masks: Katie Green’s ‘Bridge’ Installation

In East Village’s newest iteration of our Art in the Public Realm program, community residents, workers, and visitors are the stars, featured front and center in the artwork. They’re people you might see as you’re walking through the neighbourhood, picking up a book from the library or grabbing weekend brunch at Chix Eggshop. But even though you might know them, you likely won’t recognize them. In this installation by local artist Katie Green, East Villagers explored empowerment through anonymity as they posed in various spaces around East Village, wearing masks they made in collaboration with the artist.

The Hive in East Village

The Hive in East Village

The neighbourhood will be abuzz with busy bees this summer, because urban beekeeping has come to East Village! Until the end of September, the green space next to the EV Experience Centre will be home to an apiary – a collection of five beehives and thousands of honey bees – that we’ve named The Hive in East Village.

Living the Verve Life

Living the Verve Life

Since the beginning, FRAM + Slokker’s Verve has been anticipated as a chic, contemporary, and well-appointed condo tower in the heart of East Village. And now that it’s here, we can safely say it fully delivers on all fronts. From the welcoming lobby to the flexible and functional units, Verve perfectly marries modern style with comfortable living.
