Weekly Gem #136 Watching the Watchers
Location: This Weekly Gem is located on Rogers Centre, in the entertainment district in Toronto (see the Clue Me! Map ).
When Michael Snow's, "The Audience," sculpture was first unveiled, the public didn't really, ah, embrace it. In fact, one Toronto Blue Jay Fan characterized it as a "giant booger." But over the years, fans have grown to love(?) this whimsical and endearing part of Rogers Centre.
Each character has a definite personality! A heckler, an eater, a picture snapper, a noise maker, and others. Which one do you see when you look in the mirror?
Here's the hidden gem entry from our Clue Me! map.
On your way to be part of an audience in this stadium, YOU are the audience!
