The City as Art

November 2, 2009
by Canadian Architect

Cities hold their own magnetic appeal – one that goes well beyond buildings, parks and avenues. Throughout history, major metropolitan centres have attracted people to both their energy and their opportunities. Today, our urban landscapes have become complex tapestries reflecting multicultural origins, historical references, architectural constructs, and human activity.


Presented by the Faculty of Communication and Design at Ryerson University, The City as Art panel discussion will unveil views of three of this city’s cultural leaders as they share experiences and observations on Toronto’s evolving artistic landscape.


Taking place at 6:00pm on Tuesday, November 10, 2009 at Ryerson University, the event features Claire Hopkinson, Executive Director, Toronto Arts Council; Geoff Pevere, The Toronto Star columnist and author of Toronto on Film; and Lisa Rochon, Cityspace columnist from The Globe and Mail. The discussion will be moderated by Rita Davies, Executive Director, Cultural Division, City of Toronto.


The event is free and open to the public. The location of the discussion is in LIB 72 of Ryerson University, located at 350 Victoria Street in Toronto.
