Yogen Fruz Brain Project 2019

July 2 - July 26

Nathan Philips Square Pond at City Hall

“As a citywide charitable art installation, the Brain Project is back for the FOURTH YEAR and this is the FOURTH YEAR that I have created a brain for this project. This year, the exhibit includes about 50 sculptures designed by artists around the world spanning Canada to the United States and as far as Israel and Turkey.

Through this initiative, The Baycrest Foundation aims to raise more than $1 million this year, ADDING TO THE $3 MILLION RAISED TO-DATE. Funds support brain research, patient care, education and innovation at Baycrest, a leader in the field of aging and brain health.

Dementia is a public health concern worldwide. In Canada, more than 564,000 Canadians are currently living with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia and this number is expected to rise. Despite general belief, dementia is not a natural or inevitable consequence of aging and there are many ways to help reduce the risk of cognitive decline.

You can visit BrainProject.ca to see all of the sculptures, learn about me and the other artists and support the cause.
