Pan Am Path Art Relay
The vision of the Pan Am Path is to combine the power of art and sport to create a living path across Toronto. From May 16 to August 15, 2015, the Pan Am Path will come alive with a city-wide relay of art installations and events. Each week, the festival will travel across Toronto to celebrate our city’s greatest assets: diversity, nature and arts.
The Pan Am Path Path Art Relay is proudly supported by the City of Toronto, Toronto Foundation, Ontario Trillium Foundation, Ontario Cultural Attractions Fund, Toronto Star, Toronto Arts Council, Trans Canada Trail, Canadian Heritage, United Way Toronto, Toronto and Region Conservation Authority, Lotus Leaf, and Westbury National.
