Runnymede Station is one of the many TTC stations across the city getting upgrades. The station is going to be accessible to all customers, regardless of their level of mobility. In addition, the station is getting a facelift as well. The art installations at Runnymede Station were unveiled last week. Elicser Elliot worked on these pieces titled Anonymous Somebody.
“Anonymous Somebody captures the snippets of our bustling Bloor West Village lives while standing still. The artworks aims to communicate the story of individual spirt as fresh and relevant to the metabolism of the neighbourhood. The images work as an anchor to a thought or memory for the person viewing it – to commemorate, celebrate, provoke, and heal. Not unlike Runnymede, a house that became a community, Anonymous Somebody welcomes all passengers to reframe the characters’ experience as they pass or wait, fluidly transitioning from past lives to present, making the artwork their own.”
