Ballpark Fans

Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario which was formerly called SkyDome, is the home of the Toronto Blue Jays Baseball Club™, 1992 & 1993 World Series Champions. One of its unique features  is the $5 million in artwork commissioned and on display both outside and inside the facility. 
One of those pieces is a giant whimsical sculpture of the types of people you might see watching a game there. Canadian artist Michael Snow, created The Audience in 1989 and his portrayal of excited fans greets guests at the northeast and northwest entrances.
The audience
Each gold-painted member of The Audience is involved in a directed action toward the oncoming spectator. Depending on your approach to the building, you can be caught in a fan’s photograph, be waved at by a young child or be sneered at if you're a fan of the opposing team.

I like this a lot! I enjoyed seeing Toronto through your eyes. It looks like a good place to visit with lots of interesting things to do. I really liked that huge old castle, and who can resist cute pandas?

I once saw a game there when it was still the Skydome, but I didn't see much else. The tickets were given to me by a student of mine, and we travelled there and back (about 3 hours each way) on the same day. Times change: I would not consider such a trip today.
