The Power Plant

The Power Plant

The Power Plant, one of Toronto's most established contemporary art galleries, is located in an actual power plant - one that was in operation for most of the 1900s. It's an iconic structure, widely recognized by its smokestack and exterior facade. Situated amidst the tourist landscape that is Harbourfront , The Power Plant is removed from the more concentrated local arts scenes on West Queen West , Yorkville and the Distillery District but each year artists and gallery supporters flock here for the much anticipated fundraiser and art party that is the Power Ball .
