Toronto Light Fest: The Art of Light

By: Alison Silveira

Beat the winter blues and come out of hibernation to explore the unique light installations at Toronto Light Fest! Held in the historic Distillery District, the festival features exhibits from local and international artists. 

It's quite romantic to stroll through the Distillery District and take in the glittering lights twinkling against the space's gorgeous backdrop. The outdoor area is magically transformed and is a visual feast for the eyes. Here are a few photos I took of my favourite installations. 

Digital Origami Tigers by LAVA - Australia (pictured above)

Bands of Friendship by Vikas Patil and Santosh Gujar - India

Infinite Support by LighForm - The Netherlands

My Light is Your Light by alaa minawi - Lebanon

Our House by Tom Dekyvere - Belgium

The best part of the festival is that it is free and fun for all ages and is on until March 12, 2016 at the Distillery District. For more information, visit
