This little plaque on the facade of 778 King Street West, just west of Tecumseth, has intrigued me for years. Either it’s wrong, or there are a lot of angry people walking along King Street.
It seems that this is the work of an American artist named Jenny Holzer, as part of a collection of works called Survival. That said, I don’t know if this is an original installation, a reproduction, or merely an homage.

778 is the Ydessa Hendeles Art Fdn and has shown Holzer bits — I’d hedge it’s an original. I didn’t know there was any Holzer installations in Toronto — neat.
Thanks for the additional info, Shawn. I’ve sometimes thought about going into 778 King to get for more information about the plaque, but always seem to be rushing to some place or another when I’m in that neighbourhood.
