festival tower art piece The BuzzHomies hightailed it over to DanielsFestival Tower today to scope out a public art unveiling this morning and boy, are we ever glad we did.

Why so glad? Well, the event was catered by Oliver & Bonacini, who provided some satisfying and delectable late-morning eats to the crowd that assembled to see the unveiling.

We were also wowed by the sculpture created by Canadian artist James Carl. “Things end” now sits at the northwest corner of King and John in front of Festival Tower‘s entrance.

City Councillor Adam Vaughan was on hand for the event, speaking to the crowd about the genesis of the John Street Cultural Corridor and how the new public art installation will play an important part in realizing his vision for John.

Check out our pics of the unveiling below!
