"People talk about spiritual in art, and I think that's been the territory of artists all along. You know, if you go into the great cathedrals made by architects and through the light of artisans, you have created a sense of awe that often is greater than what people feel when they read, or any sort of rhetoric by the priesthood. This is something that can be very powerful in a visual sense."
James Turrell

Toronto will soon embrace a new public art installation by celebrated artist James Turrell. Known for works that explore the spiritual qualities of light and form, Turrell is being commissioned by Toronto developer Brookfield Properties to create a public art work for their new building at the Bay-Adelaide Centre.
