Asli Alin is a multi-disciplinary artist whose artwork has appeared in the New York Times and numerous other publications. For this project, Alin created playful designs featuring motifs of nature and animals. It is her hope that these designs will appeal to people from a multitude of diverse backgrounds and age groups.
Part of a series of functional public art seating treatments that were installed at 26 crossings within the Centennial and Hydro Corridor Multi-Use Pathways, this project allows for the integration of functional artwork into neighbourhoods citywide, promotes active living and provides amenities to those using the pathways.
