Hoarding Exhibits / PATCH

Our PATCH Project is the industry leader in connecting developers, builders and marketing firms with artists to help you meet public art requirements for your construction site. Already a legislated requirement in Toronto, public art is being encouraged on construction sites in cities around the world.

Our superior project management skills make this turnkey process easy for you by curating a shortlist of artists, facilitating the design process, fabricating and installing the exhibit, as well as promoting the artwork.

Our PATCH hoarding exhibit services are:

Unique: With our roster of 150+ Toronto area artists and site-specific calls, we create exhibits that are as diverse as your development projects.

Cost-effective: Forget about paying for traditional advertising, investing in well curated artwork will market your development project for you!

Expedient: Having facilitated City of Toronto approvals for 80+ sites, we will help you will move forward quickly with construction staging permits.

Transformational: We bring moments of beauty and reflection to overlooked spaces. By engaging STEPS, you are investing in a vibrant city.
