Artspace is shutting down the iconic Drayway (aka the tunnel) to invite you in/out for a drink!
Since we're all about claiming space for art to leave an impact, we've also invited international artist Yoel Jimenez to do a public art installation that will evolve over each lounge; culminating in its climatic end during the last art lounge on September 7th. In other words, the impact of his art shall grow and expand throughout the summer.
This is a new offering, but one that has all the trademark characteristics of the Exchange district. It utilizes iconic spaces, it activates artists, it invites the public to witness and experience art, its not-for-profit (meaning all money collected is used to pay for the art), its on Fridays while many things are happening throughout the neighbourhood, it involves various partners and volunteers to allow it to come to fruition.
So a huge thanks to our art sponsor Johnston Group, to our event sponsors HTFC Planning, AUX: projects, Scatliff + Miller + Murray, and the Exchange Biz. We're also close to announcing our Beer partner!
Stay tune for more news… but come kick off the magic of the Exchange with a beer in the Drayway.
