“Art in the City” Art Show and Sale!
The PACE Consumer Resource Department has now completed its fourth year of its “Art in the City” program. Through our partnership with Art Starts, we had 10 participants in this year’s program and the 13-week program was once again held at the Art Starts studio space in Yorkdale Mall.
Art Starts is a community organization that was started in 1992 and is funded jointly by the City of Toronto and the Trillium Foundation. It brings together and inspires artists from diverse backgrounds and disciplines to create community-building art projects and initiatives.
The Art Starts studio is a great space for this program as it is fully accessible and contains everything a studio should – a large open space, good lighting, tables that can be easily set-up, lots of sinks, audio visual equipment, sound equipment, pottery wheels and a kiln, sewing machines, storage space and great staff. The program participants feel very welcome and inspired.
