Public Art // Persephone
Humber College’s Lakeshore Campus sits on the grounds of the former Lakeshore Psychiatric Hospital on the western shores of Lake Ontario. The award-winning L-Building, a design-build between Humber, Carillion Canada and HOK Architects, is nestled in the centre of 11 historic ’cottages’ constructed in the 1890’s as the Mimico Branch Asylum. Prominently occupying the L-Building’s front courtyard sits Persephone, a deep black Queen of the shades and the sign of a healthy harvest.
