The Japanese Canadian Centennial Temple Bell and three sculptures from the Government of Ontario Art Collection are being relocated to storage to ensure they are protected during construction. Relocation work began in Summer 2023 and will be completed by late Fall 2023.
The artworks include Akio Murasawa’s Dialogue (1984), and Kosso Eloul’s Salut (1975) and Passage (ca. 1984). The Japanese Canadian Centennial Bell monument includes the Goh Ohn Bell Shelter, designed by Raymond Moriyama (1977).
All three artworks, the Japanese Canadian Centennial Temple Bell and Goh Ohn Bell Shelter will be stored securely onsite until reinstallation as part of the redeveloped public spaces at Ontario Place.
The project team is committed to ensuring the safety of the artworks and monument throughout the redevelopment of Ontario Place.
