Classic 107 - Winnipeg's classical and jazz radio station.

A combination of art and architecture enters its fifth year, and it's expanding.

The Cool Gardens is a public exhibition celebrating contemporary garden culture, public art, and local landscape. In Winnipeg, its sites now run from Main Street, through The Forks, to Provencher Boulevard.

This year features four returning pieces, and three new installations -- one by the Esplanade Riel in The Forks, one at Upper Fort Garry, and one in Brandon.

The Marc Boutin Architectural Collaborative designed the new piece at The Forks. It uses a cluster of mirrors at various heights.

Boutin says the idea was to create a field of elements that could bend two entities.
