Gallery City presents the Crosstown Art Crawl!
Gallery City is a joint initiative of Metrolinx, Crosslinx Transit Solutions – Constructors (CTSC), the seven Eglinton Business improvement areas, and Eglinton businesses between Weston Road and Laird. To secure the art for the initiative, Gallery City has partnered with all the local non-profit arts organizations along Eglinton Avenue, including Urban Arts, NIA Centre for the Arts, Art Starts and the Artbarn School.
The original Gallery City concept was conceived in partnership between the York-Eglinton BIA and Hogtown Mascots, under the artistic direction of John Kernaghan, in 2013. It ran for approximately three months in the Oakwood and Eglinton community.
This year, Gallery City will bring together local businesses, property owners and local artists from across Eglinton. The six designated art crawls will help create Eglinton as a destination for Torontonians and tourists and invite new foot traffic along the corridor.
