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.

Murder at the ROM

Saturday August 30th at 1:00-3:30 pm

A curator has been murdered and a trail of clues left behind, connected to secrets in the collections. As you solve clues, you’ll begin to piece together a tale of greed, lust, pride and revenge. There are multiple suspects, one victim and you, the sleuths, must crack a cryptic code left in the curator’s appointment book to solve the mystery.

On an Urban Capers Scavenger Hunt, you don’t collect items, but rather answers to tricky and humourous questions. This event is not associated with the ROM. Tickets must be purchased in advance at www.urbancapers.com/murder-at-the-royal-ontario-museum/.
