TSA Walking Tour: Art and The Grange
Take a stroll with us through Grange Park and discover the hidden gems and bold contemporary buildings that sit at the lively epicentre of Toronto’s art scene.
For over 100 years, Grange Park has been at the epicentre of Toronto’s art scene – evolving from the private front lawn of a colonial estate to a lively urban park surrounded by some of the city’s preeminent art institutions.
Join us on a stroll through the park and the surrounding streets as we explore some of the buildings – large and small, but always bold! – which are home to some of Canada’s preeminent art institutions. Included in this tour are some of the city’s best known contemporary landmarks like the colourful Sharp Centre for Design and Ghery’s addition to the Art Gallery of Ontario, as well as small but daring projects that pack a design punch. And while architecture might take centre stage, we’ll also speak to some of the great public art pieces along our walk and the playful urban park that unites it all.
This tour will be offered at select times throughout the summer.
