Waiting For You to Climb on Board | UrbanToronto

There’s a major new piece of public art in David Pecaut Square — on the south side of King Street between Roy Thomson Hall and Metro Hall — for about a year. Created by the London and Sydney-based duo of Gillie and Marc, the work called He Was on a Ride to a Safer Place features a Northern White Rhino leading a four-seater bike, followed by Dogman and Rabbitwoman, staples in Gillie and Marc’s prolific work. The fourth seat, empty in this image by UrbanToronto Forum contributor APTA-2048, is waiting for you and your friends. You can learn a lot more about the work’s meaning here.
