natureinthegarage, is a project by 10 International and Canadian artists who
have been invited to address nature and the environment employing a standard
garden shed placed in six locations throughout downtown Toronto. The garden
shed, a common storage space found in residential backyards, becomes the
dream sphere where visitors can experience the narratives and allegories
that we bring to the natural world.

natureinthegarage artists include Mary Anne Barkhouse, Catherine Bodmer,
Maria Fernanda Cardoso, John Dickson, Noel Harding, Yvonne Lammerich, Gwen
MacGregor, Rod Strickland, Noboru Tsubaki, and Diing-Wuu Wu Walis.
