Sculpture Davisville

August 2017 - Toronto ON

The Al Green Sculpture park supposedly includes 18 statues and is located on Davisville Avenue, as well as in the immediate vicinity. It was founded by the entrepreneur (and later sculptor) Abraham "Al" Green, a project developer in Toronto, who was responsible for building the many apartment buildings on Davisville. His company was co-responsible for the choice of images produced by some sculptors for the district.

We didn't find 18, nor can I find names for some of them online.
