Media Advisory: Toronto recommissions the Salmon Run Fountain
"Salmon Run," a fountain, sculpture created by artist Susan Schelle in 1991
will be officially recommissioned in a ceremony hosted by the City of Toronto.

The fountain is a combination of both black and "Atlantic" green granite as
well as bronze. It depicts salmon swimming upstream through a barrier of reeds
and eelgrass and is approximately 8 feet high and 50 feet across.

"Salmon Run" was created to acknowledge the natural heritage of the Toronto
lakeshore and inspire hope for the ecological well-being of an area now
dominated by human traffic.

The recommissioning ceremony will celebrate this important focal point of the
City’s most visited attraction - the CN Tower.

A light lunch will be served after the ceremony beside the fountain’s cascading

Date: Wednesday, June 1
Time: Noon
Place: Salmon Run Fountain (located a few steps south of the CN Tower at the
north-east corner of Bremner Boulevard and Rees Street).
