Being Born

Have you ever wondered what the 'C' Sculpture off the Ohio St exit of the Kennedy Expressway is?  Situated on the triangle at Ohio, Ontario, and Orleans, "Being Born" was created by Italian sculptor Virginio Ferrari in 1983.  In 1996, it was moved to it's current location from State and Washington.  The idea was to create an artwork display that celebrated both art and technology.  The 2 stainless steel circular pieces represent skill and precision of the tool and die industry.  In the summer of 2008 the sculpture was restored for it's 25th anniversary.  Many consider this design as the gateway into the city.
