This summer Palais Royale, Mayor John Tory and Chicago artist Justus Roe unveiled the City’s latest piece of street art. The project was part of a cultural exchange between sister cities Toronto and Chicago to commemorate Canada’s 150th birthday and the ‘Year of Public Art’ that is taking place in Chicago.
The project is part of the StreetARToronto Partnership Program and is a collaboration with the STEPS Initiative, an award-winning, Toronto-based public arts organization. The project brought together the artist and local residents to transform the Roncesvalles Pedestrian Bridge, one of Toronto’s busiest connections to the waterfront.
Justus Roe, an American artist, lives and works in Chicago.
He works in a variety of visual mediums including canvas painting, large scale wall paintings / murals and sculptural installations. His work references architecture, city grid systems, and landscapes. His stylized forms, mark making and color palette develop work that is at once reminiscent of aerial perspectives and metropolitan environments.
Come down to the waterfront to see this amazing piece of street art.
Farid and Parmis met at Palais Royale on December 31st 2011, five minutes before the New Year’s Eve ball dropped.
They spoke until 3 in the morning on the deck of Palais, and realized there was a spark. Five years later, Farid brought Parmis back to Palais “just to see the place again and bring back the memories of when they first met”. Little did she realize that Farid was about to propose on that same deck they got to know each other for the first time.
And of course she said yes.
It is always such a pleasure to continue the tradition of creating memories here at Palais Royale.
We wish Parmis and Farid a lifetime of happiness.
