FREE ADMISSION courtesy of the RBC Foundation.

Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art — 952 Queen Street West

MOCCA presents “Over the Rainbow: Seduction and Identity”, in partnership with WorldPride 2014, an exhibition acknowledging many of the familiar archetypes associated with queer culture – sexuality, camp, celebrity, rainbows. The exhibition looks beyond these to examine reciprocal ways that gay and mainstream representation have influenced each other, and in doing so have contributed to shaping aspects of our culture and identities over the last several decades. Artworks from “Over the Rainbow” are drawn from the collection of Salah Bachir and Jacob Yerex.

Featured artists include Stephen Andrews, Attila Richard Lukacs, Public Studio, Justine Kurland, Betty Goodwin, General Idea, Andy Fabo, Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Annie Leibowitz, Herb Ritts and many more.

Open Streets Toronto

In the last 10 years, Canada’s cultural capital has undergone an architectural renaissance. World-renowned architects Daniel Libeskind and Frank Gehry have left their imprint on the city alongside monumental works by resident firms Kuwabara Payne McKenna Blumberg and Diamond and Schmitt.

Explore the Bloor Street Cultural District, Philosopher’s Walk, and University of Toronto downtown campus, where we emerge in the dynamic Medical Discovery District, seeing how the city and the campus flow into and out of one another while referencing the different periods and styles of buildings along the route. Learn about the “starchitects” and their innovative designs that are hidden in plain view on Bloor Street West and on the University of Toronto downtown campus. Our excursion concludes at the Art Gallery of Ontario at Dundas and McCaul Street.

Join On the Town Tours for complimentary walking tours of the Cultural-University-Discovery District at Open Streets Toronto, Sunday, August 17 and 31. All tours begin at 10 am and are approximately 1-1/2 hrs. long.

Meet at: 135 St. George Street, in front of the York Club, at the corner of St. George and Bloor
