The Brain Project: 100 Beautiful Brains Set To Pop Up in Downtown Toronto

If you were walking through Nathan Phillips Square and stumbled into numerous brightly painted brains, what would you think? What conversations would be sparked?

This June, The Brain Project will place 100 giant brain sculptures throughout the downtown core. Spearheaded by Baycrest Health Sciences, with generous support from TELUS, The Brain Project is a creative initiative to get people talking about brain health: both preventative care and support for brain degenerative diseases.

Dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s: almost every family has been affected by a brain disease of some kind. Baycrest Health Sciences is a global leader in geriatric residential living, research, innovation and education, with a special focus on brain health and aging. This vibrant project aims to take the issues of brain health into the forefront, for generations young and old.

Artists participating in the project include Mr. Brainwash, Gary Taxali, Karim Rashid, Janna Watson, Jill Greenberg, and many more. Outside the circle of local artists, Kim Kardashian West also painted a brain with North West. (Both weird and kinda cool.) Apparently, upon hearing of the project, Kim decided it would be a fun art project to do with her daughter. We haven’t seen it but hear there are cute little North West handprints all over the giant brain.

Here’s to a beautiful, healthy, happy, artful mind.

    Life is all about good and bad experience
    Life is all about good and bad experience. It was all good and lovely 

    when i met jully, she was a good business woman until things become 

    rough for her and her business empire started liquidating. I was a very 

    courageous and hardworking man so i decided to sell my inheritance to 

    assist . We both struggle together and built the business world again. 

    This time around the business was growing from strength to strength. I 

    was surprise one Sunday evening when she came home with her secretary 

    and told me that we cannot continue with this pretense called love. I 

    was shocked and heart broken, i was in a friend, house for three weeks 

    frustrated until i met fernando my old friend at the supermarket, he 

    directed to me to Dr saka. I contacted saka and he told me that Jully 

    was been manipulated by some spiritual power and he told me to provide 

    some items which he is going to use to destroy the evil spirit. I never 

    believe in voodoo but i had to give him a trial. To my greatest 

    surprise, Jully called and started apologizing 2 days after i sent Dr. 

    Saka the email. I am very happy and will continue to be happy for the 

    good work the Saka has done in my life. Problems are been solved when 

    good people like Saka  are on this planet, please contact him through if you need any support in any problems in 

    life. I love Dr Saka … 🙂
