The New Zoo
Author: Sarah Elton
The Animal Nature In Art
If you turn right instead of left at the Toronto Zoo's main entrance, you'll see a small sign that reads Live Arts and a gravel road that leads to an old mansion. It's a romantic place with an ethereal, dreamy feel. Towering trees line the driveway to the front yard, where there is an overgrown Japanese garden. Down some stone stairs to the side of the house is an open field, a former horse racetrack that separates the house from the Rouge River. Artist Noel Harding calls this place The Bestiary.
