Thank you for our first major article since the announcement of our artist shortlist. The Toronto Star has a special place in our story as in 1980 the paper connected a young journalist, Leslie Scrivener, to Terry Fox when she was assigned to provide ongoing reports of the Marathon of Hope. Through the assignment Leslie formed a meaningful kinship with Terry Fox, and later wrote his biography. Some 38 years later, Leslie and co-lead Geri Berholz are championing the citizen-powered Legacy Art Project, a public space to inspire visitors, ignite passion, spark action and create impact by bringing life to Terry’s legacy of inspiration. This project will honour our past and look to the future. A great article to detail our intention and what to get excited about Toronto!
