The Living City Art Exhibition
November 23 – December 31 2017

The Living City art exhibition is a project developed in partnership with Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA), Evergreen and Crazy Dames.

The exhibition features seven artists who have been working collaboratively with TRCA environmental experts to create new artworks based on the themes identified in The Living City Report Card, a progress report on environmental sustainability in the Toronto Region. The report card aims to answer three important questions: How are we doing? Where have we excelled? On what issues do we need to work even harder?

The seven themes explored are carbon, air quality, water, waste, land use, biodiversity and collaboration. Featured artists include Gustavo Cerquera Benjumea, Lisa Vanin, Cat Bluemke, Vivian Wong, Cole Swanson, Paul Chartrand and 1:1 Collaborative (Astrid Greaves, Carla Lipkin, Lisa Gregory, Sarry Klein).

This exhibition is intended to foster cross-disciplinary dialogue about the issues and calls to actions outlined in The Living City Report Card, inspire innovative and creative thinking about environmental issues within our communities and reimagine how we can collaborate to realize a sustainable future for the Toronto region.

The exhibition runs November 23rd to December 31st 2017 during Evergreen’s hours of operation (The exhibition will be closed December 25, 2017).

There will be a launch party on November 23rd, 2017. To attend, please register in advance.

RSVP Here!

When: November 23rd, 6:30 – 8:30 PM
Where: Evergreen Brick Works

Please be aware that as this exhibition is site-wide, some of the installations may be inaccessible at times if areas are closed to the public.

Note that the site, for the most part, is accessible. Three of the artworks are partially accessible (visible from the main path but require the use of stairs to get a closer view).
