No. 9 and BGL Launch Environmental Art Project for Earth Day
LOOKING FOR SOMETHING FUN, FREE AND CREATIVE TO DO AFTER SCHOOL ON EARTH DAY?
COME DOWN TO THE BANKS OF THE LOWER DON!
No. 9 Contemporary Art and the Environment has commissioned the acclaimed art collective BGL to create an art installation on the Lower Don, the most altered part of this urban river. Inspired by this installation, No. 9 is hosting an Earth Day Event on the banks of the Lower Don, by the old Eastern Avenue bridge.
Open to the general public April 22, from 3:30 – 5:30 pm, the event integrates environmental issues, art and social history.
Participants can create their own clay art in response to the BGL exhibit, and are also invited to go on an environmental walking tour of the Lower Don, and visit the displays by groups instrumental in the protection and revitalization of the Lower Don, such as the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority and Waterfront Toronto.

Everyone is Welcome. We look forward to seeing you there!
