Bottled Up: The Secrets of Prohibition Era Etobicoke

 

Spring 2022 - Spring 2023

  

The corner of Kipling and Lake Shore Boulevard has been a central hub for the community as a hotel for the majority of its history. Explore the storied tale of prohibition era Ontario and how it influences New Toronto -  including bar fights, legal issues, "blind pigs," and an obscure connection to an underground alcohol smuggling ring!

This Old Tree

Featuring Artist Pat Rice

June 20 - September 17, 2022

Explore the paintings of local artist Pat Rice in "This Old Tree." The generations of trees and surrounding natural environments of the neighbourhood are the inspiration for this exhibition. Interspersed in the forest of paintings are iconic features of Long Branch, many of which you may instantly recognize!

Propose an Exhibition

We feature solo and group art shows on the third floor of the Student Welcome and Resource Centre and also welcome contributions to our bi-annual exhibitions in the Interpretive Centre's main space in WEL104.

 

Themes must connect to one of our four guiding themes of Indigenous heritage, mental health history, educational heritage, or ecology, and/or highlight the local history of the Lakeshore Grounds region. Submissions are encouraged both from community members and students. We support artists of all experience levels.
