The Beach Village BIA is happy to announce an all new, COVID-safe outdoor public art activation, Luminosity, coming to the Beach this March!

Luminosity will take place between March 13 to April 11, 2021 and will feature a diverse range of light art installations along Queen Street East. The installations will transform familiar spaces into unique works of urban art and will welcome Torontonians to explore their city. They will allow visitors to experience the warmth of the light, through artist interpretation, and act as a ‘light at the end of the tunnel’, following a difficult winter with COVID-19.
