Crisis Phone 2020 is an art installation that will be on display for the next six months outside the Norfolk Street library. It consists of a decommissioned public telephone painted red and black, with quotes scrawled in either black or white paint.

The project is intended as a reflection on the opioid crisis and the impact it is having on the community in Guelph.

The installation consists of a standalone public telephone which has been repainted and covered in quotations relevant to the conversation.

At its heart is a black telephone and below it where the phone book would be found are empty pages that can be filled by people passing by.
