Outdoor Art - Rainbow Pieces

Rainbow Piece is an outdoor sculpture that utilizes arched tubular elements with applied color to fiberglass, its dimensions are 2.64 x 8.75 x 6.39 m. Located within a reflecting pool of Scott library at York University in Toronto, Canada, the arcs of Rainbow Piece's colors shift with the movement of the sun.

The structure was created by Montreal born Hugh LeRoy, who studied at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts under Arthur Lismer for five years, and was later elected as a Fellow of the Royal Canadian Academy in 1975. He is most noted for his sculptures, works that are within a constructivist idiom.

LeRoy is presently an Associate Professor of drawing, painting and sculpture in the Faculty of Fine Arts, York University. Rainbow Piece was purchased by York University in 1972. Find out more about the artist at:
