Radar: Fireside Culture Week, Palladio and English Palladian Architecture, Array Session #11, Elvis Monday, 24 Hours Berlin (A Day in the Life)
CULTURE | Fireside Culture Week
Fireside Culture Week is a five-day celebration of art and performance, put together by the Parkdale Village BIA. The opening takes place tonight at Goodfellas Gallery. There will be much mingling and networking, and thus a great event for area residents and those who work or own a business in the area. Even if you don't fall into those categories, you will definitely enjoy the refreshments, courtesy of local breweries, bakeries and other sources of good eats. Jeff Quick and Shuggie & The Bandits will be tonight's entertainment, and should set the tone for the week's festivities.
Goodfellas Gallery (1266 Queen West) 7PM
LECTURE | Palladio and English Palladian Architecture
Andrea Palladio was a Venetian architect active in 16th Century Italy, who is considered by many to be the single most influential architect in history. He also wrote a well known and highly regarded four-volume work on his profession called, "I quattro libri dell'architettura." His style of European architecture is referred to as "Palladian", and this style became influential in England in the 18th Century. This evening, a fascinating lecture will be delivered at The Campbell House Museum by art historian and TVO regular Dr. Broun, who will examine Palladio's work and its subsequent impact on English architecture.
Campbell House Museum (160 Queen Street West) 6:30PM

Who can argue with the fact that Monday makes for a great movie night? It's the perfect night to treat yourself, given how long a wait it is before next weekend! Short and Sweet is a film event that goes down every Monday at No One Writes to the Colonel on College Street, and its focus is short films from around the world, which can include animation, music videos, and more. Tonight, the work of Matthew Adam Jones, Stine Hole Mankovsky, and others will be featured. Never a cover!
