The installations include Cube A, a stack of rotating cubed art, Growth, a tall and colourful sculpture made of wood, and Big Idea, a transparent cube with a light bulb inside balanced on a hazard-striped structure.

Winter Works is a six-week exhibition of immersive, interactive, temporary winter art displays designed to incorporate existing outdoor fixtures across Windsor’s downtown, the BIA’s website said.

Winter Works is funded through the provincial government’s Reconnect Ontario 2022 program, which supports festivals and events with an economic impact on tourism. The project is presented in partnership with Art Windsor-Essex and the Downtown Windsor Districting Committee.
