Happy Birthday Toronto 181st”Past,Present and Future”Art-Wed.,March 4th,2015@Steamwhistle Roundhouse


Toronto is turning 181 years and on March 4th Steamwhistle celebrated A Happy Birthday party Toronto, opening reception and special art exhibit of “Toronto: Past, Present, Future”, presented at the Steam Whistle Gallery this month.
“Toronto: Past, Present, Future” is a mixture of artwork across all mediums from Toronto-based artists who explore the nightlife, urban scenery and historical landscapes of Ontario’s capital. The Steam Whistle Gallery was transformed, lending a view into Toronto’s past, with its diverse and multifaceted future. Steam Whistle’s historical venue and sustainable initiatives – including the use of 100% renewable Bullfrog Power and Deep Lake Water Cooling and District Steam heating for the building’s climate control among other initiatives- provides a complimentary backdrop for the event.
The artwork really celebrates Toronto’s past, as it reflects on Toronto’s roots and how far we’ve come in these short 181 years.
The Length of exhibit runs from March 4th to 29th (during Brewery’s regular opening hours)
