Another amazing event is coming to The Bentway and it’s going to be a feast for the eyes. The exhibit, titled WATERLICHT, is a huge light display that explores the role of water and all its dangers. Created by Daan Roosegaarde, the large-scale light installation represents the universal power, poetry, and danger of water.

The displays are created through the imaginative use of LEDs, special software, and lenses. Larger-than-life, cascading waves of blue light will soar underneath the Gardiner Expressway, simulating a virtual flood and calling attention to rising water levels along Toronto’s shoreline.
