200 QUEEN STREET

At the front of 200 Queen Street is a large (height 4.7m) bronze sculpture titled "Rhythms of the Metropolis" created in 1996, by Andrew Rogers. Andrew Rogers is an Australian sculptor whose works may be found in many plazas and buildings around the world. The rhythmic energy of the city was celebrated by futurism, a style that was at one stage taken up by Rogers. Nowadays, he is internationally known for his monumental geoglyph land art around the world.

  2. Very modern for sure. Modern art has taken over many corners in our downtown area, too. :)
