100 sculptures. 100 artists. 1 important cause.
Be part of a brain health movement!

The Brain Project is seeking ambitious artists who are interested in exploring the connection between art and the brain. Now in its second year, the public outdoor art exhibit will feature 100 sculptures designed by 100 emerging and world-renowned artists. The 2016 roster of artists included Bobbie Burgers, Mr. Brainwash, Gary Taxali, Darlene Cole, and many more.

The sculptures will be on public display in downtown Toronto during the summer of 2017 and the project raises funds and awareness for Baycrest Health Sciences, a global leader in brain health and aging. The 2016 The Brain Project generated over $1.1 million dollars for Baycrest and garnered over 134,000,000 media impressions.

Join the legacy of this project and help to spark a public conversation about the importance of brain health.
