One of Toronto’s most anticipated annual art events, the Whodunit? Mystery Art Sale presents work by Ontario College of Art & Design students, faculty, alumni, acclaimed artists and designers, and creative celebrities. The work is all the same size (5½” x 7½”) and all the same price ($75) — with proceeds supporting OCAD’s unique creative environment.
