• Art and Exhibits

    Toronto Pearson is more than just a gateway to the world - it’s a cultural hub. Look around and take in our extensive art and exhibition program, and see why exploring our terminals is truly an adventure.

     Exhibit 1

    Our Permanent Collection

    In 2000, Toronto Pearson asked artists from around the world to create works that represent Toronto’s role as a gateway to North American air travel, while capturing the essence of flight. More than 300 incredible submissions were received, and eight were selected as permanent installations. Look for them as you make your way through the airport.  


    Three impressive large-scale sculptures were also commissioned for Pier F. To see these works, including our pieces from the Transport Canada Collection, please view our complete art catalogue.

    Dinosaurs in Terminal 1

    Travel back to a time when pterodactyls ruled the skies instead of airplanes. Our prehistoric installation, "A Scene from the Late Jurassic", features two incredible dinosaurs courtesy of the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM), and is sure to thrill guests of all ages. Drop by Terminal 1 to see a large Allosaurus bearing down on an Othnielia that has fallen to the ground. Amazing!
