TOAF61 Day 6: Travelling around the city and beyond

July 13, 2022

We would like to take you out on an art-filled stroll in the city today. Join us for a tour of a new laneway mural and graffiti art series called “grit”, celebrating the resilience of local businesses and surrounding communities throughout the pandemic.

In today’s Art Talk Think Beyond the Canvas, artists discuss the significance of art in the public realm, and inspire you to think beyond your walls when commissioning art. Both the talk and tour are presented by our programming partners at StreetARToronto. Get the details below. 

Next, we head to Winnipeg for a Studio Tour with photography, video, and installation artist Sarah Fuller. From there, we will set off to South Carolina to connect with Suzanne Aulds for an Artist Chat about her unique oil paintings, accompanied by self-taught collage artist Selina Yung

Then, be sure to explore our Curated Collections of the day by internationally exhibiting LEGO® artist Ekow Nimako, who is shining a light on intriguing otherworldly subjects in Surrealia. Melanie Egan, the acclaimed curator of Harbourfront Centre’s Craft & Design program, is presenting a selection of objects evoking Materiality, Movement, Minimalism
