Just a word of thanks from all of us (Richard, Jeff, Kristen, Irmina and Kevin) at the Rail of Light exhibit at Scotiabank Nuit Blanche on Saturday, October 2, 2010. It was a first for many of us and we’re sure it has been some time since the Wallace Avenue bridge attracted so many visitors.
We want to thank everyone who helped out, and they were many, and everyone who came out and supported an ambitious neighbourhood arts project. There were dozens of people who helped set up and take down the exhibit and still others who staffed the event during the night. Rail of Light could not have happened without the support of the City of Toronto, especially the folks at Clean and Beautiful, and our very generous sponsors at Castlepoint Realty Partners and Realtors for Electric Rail. And also our neighbours and friends. Please click through the pages of this site for more info and pictures of the exhibit.
