Cranbrooke Art Unveiling

Today, Options for Homes’ owners at the newly built condominium, Cranbrooke Village, and North York community residents gathered for the unveiling of two sculptures in front of the building. The Spire Stelae sculptures were created by artist Peter Powning, with the intent to capture the sense of community in his public artwork. Peter incorporated the community members into his art piece by hosting casting sessions in which he made impressions of their favorite items.
We’re proud and excited to have such wonderful pieces of art with a strong community focus at Cranbrooke!
