Fine Art Prof Featured in Globe and Mail

September 30, 2010 - In the News

Prof. Sandra Rechico, School of Fine Art and Music, is featured today in the Globe and Mail.

Her giant multimedia art exhibit will be a focus point of this weekend's Nuit Blanche in Toronto, an annual sunset-to-sunrise celebration of contemporary art. Artists and spectators of all ages get together to share their passion for art, with exhibits and shows displayed all around Toronto’s downtown core, which is divided into zones for the weekend. Rechico’s display is part of “Zone C.”

A multimedia artist, she will be resurrecting an old Toronto boundary from 1850. The line where Lake Ontario once met the city will be marked by a wide glowing wall of blue light. The project requires 12- by 24-foot scaffolding, hundreds of LED lights and a team of technicians.

Rechico, who has lived in Toronto for more than 20 years, often features the city in her art. Her drawings and installations investigate urban space, and her work has been exhibited across Canada and abroad. Her exhibitions have been featured in numerous publications, and she has participated in a number of international residencies.
