Tony Romano is a Toronto-based artist whose practice includes sculpture, film and video, installation, music and text. Working within a family tradition of carpentry and metal work, Romano uses sculpture to explore the possibilities of everyday materials and, in doing so, to bridge the disparate worlds of daily working class labour with the more rarified atmosphere of the high art object.


About The Toronto Sculpture Garden
Between 1981 and 2014 the Toronto Sculpture Garden was made possible by an inspired partnership between the City of Toronto and the Luis L. Odette family, who provided the support to operate and program a city park much like an open air art gallery, dedicated to ambitious, high quality, contemporary outdoor art. The innovative program, run by director and curator Rina Greer, gave opportunities to over 80 Canadian and international artists over the years to try their hands at large scale installations. For many, it was the experience of working in the Sculpture Garden that allowed them to expand their artistic practice to the challenging field of Public Art.

The Toronto Sculpture Garden is a partially accessible site.
