The Yogen Früz Brain Project, a city-wide Toronto art exhibit, is celebrating its fifth year with exciting, thought-provoking works of art that raise awareness about brain health and critical funding for research at Baycrest for Alzheimer’s and related dementias.
This year’s exhibit of 50 brain sculptures by a talented group of local and international artists, celebrities and thought-leaders includes a curated look back at some of the inspirational works from the first four years that tie into the themes of brain resilience, memory, neuroplasticity, stigma and protection.
Each year, The Yogen Früz Brain Project attracts painters, sculptors, musicians, broadcasters, influencers, performance artists and creative thinkers who bring their own personal interpretations of the themes to a blank, brain-shaped, three-dimensional form using the mediums of their choice. The sculptures are displayed at a variety of prime locations around Toronto, inspiring conversations about brain health.
Sales of the sculptures, corporate sponsorships and individual donations raise crucial funds for Baycrest’s efforts to defeat dementia and improve the aging experience.
The funds raised through The Yogen Früz Brain Project directly support care, research and programs at Baycrest, a global leader in brain health and aging. With your help, nearly $4 million has been raised for the Baycrest Foundation. Your continued support will ensure programming, research and support will assist the more than 564,000 Canadians living with Alzheimer’s and related dementias.
