Sunday Snap: Still Dancing

Still Dancing in the Distillery District |

Name: Still Dancing, Artist: Dennis Oppenheim

Depending on who you talk to, “Still Dancing’, the huge art installation in the middle of Toronto’s Distillery District, resembles either a whiskey still and a droplet of liquid or a man and woman dancing. I’m in the former camp since I just can’t make that leap from abstract shapes to people dancing. But I can get on board with a stylized still and droplet, especially considering the location. Dennis Oppenheim, the artist, describes Still Dancing as a “combination of sculpture, architecture and theatre”. The Distillery District was once the home of the Gooderham and Worts Distillery, making and selling whiskey to thirsty folks starting in the mid-1800s, but  houses many boutique galleries, shops, restaurants and brewpubs. The streets are closed to traffic so it’s the perfect spot to go for an afternoon stroll.

Disclaimer: I was in the Distillery District as a guest of Segway of Ontario.
