Toronto Through My Lens

“The Ascent”

This piece, entitled The Ascent, is located outside Starbucks at 1121 Bay Street, corner of Bay and Charles Streets. Designed by Toronto husband and wife team Paul Kipps and Colette Whitens, it features nine female silhouettes climbing upward.

A bit of trivia: this Starbucks location is the former site of the famed, but long-gone, restaurant La Scala.

    You know it is so funny cause you can walk by this Starbucks a million times and NEVER notice this small art piece. I guess it proves the point that we don’t look around us enough. Who was it that said; Always look behind you, you never know what you missed the first time.

      Very true.
