NO VACANCY Opening Reception
On March 10, from 6 PM to 8 PM, join Scarborough Arts, Myseum of Toronto, and the Scarborough Historical Society for an evening of art, architecture, and history at the opening reception of Scarborough Arts’ new exhibition, NO VACANCY.
NO VACANCY explores the vibrant history of Kingston Road’s once-bustling motel strip and the evolving use of the seemingly desolate motel spaces today. Through archival photographs paired with contemporary artworks and a participatory installation, NO VACANCY tells the stories of places and the people left behind by neighbourhood gentrification and evolution.
The exhibit runs from March 10 to 31, 2017 at Scarborough Arts’ Bluffs Gallery on 1859 Kingston Road.
NO VACANCY is presented by Scarborough Arts in partnership with Myseum of Toronto and the Scarborough Historical Society as part of Myseum Intersections (#MyseumX), Myseum of Toronto’s annual festival of exhibits showcasing different perspectives of the city’s natural, cultural, and historic diversity. #MyseumX takes place citywide from March 6 to 31, 2017.
