Queen West Art Crawl 2011

Photos of the 2011 Queen West Art Crawl

The ninth annual Queen West Art Crawl (QWAC) took place this weekend with a host of live performances, artist talks, and, of course, a huge open-air art show in Trinity Bellwoods Park, which served as the focal point of the festivities. Although the exhibition is a juried affair, highbrow art is usually in the minority at QWAC, where the focus tends towards work that's craft-driven and less pretentious in general. As is the case with any show that features 250 participating artists, the selection is wildly uneven, but that's actually part of the fun.
