May 31 – At the Oasis

Tonight I am standing in the middle of the L’Oréal Paris Oasis, in plain view of the immense 51’X34’ canvas on the side of the Germain Hotel. The security ropes have been put up and double checked, and the scaffolding stands idle on the pavement.

It’s hard not to anticipate excitement when you actually see for yourself the grandeur of the task at hand. Tomorrow evening the first brush strokes will begin as what will be Carlito Dalceggio’s live installation art, presented by L’Oréal Paris as part of the 10-day Luminato Festival. Quite frankly, as I stand here this evening, I realize how remarkable it will be.

For the next ten days, the entire city of Toronto will dive into a creative paradise. We invite you to join us on the Oasis rooftop terrace, and with various mediums traditional and modern provided, share your inspirations with the artist and interpretations of the art installation and of the festival as a whole. While here, have a cocktail and get some touch ups and tips from the L’Oréal Paris make-up team...and above all, get a front seat of an unprecedented event.

Not in Toronto? Your comments are equally appreciated. Stay updated on this event and others by coming back to this blog everyday until the end of the festival.
