Heritage Toronto announces a photo exhibition to be held at the Gladstone Hotel during Ontario Heritage Week in February.
A collaborative effort by Heritage Toronto and members of Toronto’s Shadow Collective, Building Storeys is a visual documentation and anecdotal exhibit of the city’s cherished – and in some cases, somewhat unknown – heritage buildings and sites. The exhibit highlights both past and present, and ponders their place in Toronto’s future. Fourteen of Toronto’s heritage buildings and sites will be featured. Profiles of some the sites will be posted on www.heritagetoronto.org leading up to the event
The exhibition takes place on the second floor of the Gladstone Hotel from Tuesday, February 17 to Sunday, February 22, 2009. The photos will be on view 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm daily, and admission is free.
Heritage Toronto works with the citizens of Toronto to advocate for, preserve, and promote a greater appreciation for our city’s rich heritage. Through partnerships with local community groups and volunteers, Heritage Toronto works to heighten awareness of our shared history by providing city-wide programs and services. Programs include free neighbourhood walking tours, the annual Heritage Toronto Awards and William Kilbourn Memorial Lecture, a heritage plaques and markers program and participation in Doors Open Toronto.
The Shadow Collective is a photography collaborative devoted to the exploration and exhibition of forgotten spaces. Members exhibiting in Building Storeys include Jeff Cutler, Robert Dyke, Rick Harris, Tammy Hoy, Timothy Neesam, Olena Sullivan, and Toni Wallachy.
