Toronto Public Library's collection of documentary art captures the city's changing streets and built environment through a variety of artists' works.
Toronto Revealed presents art that captures Toronto's quickly changing streetscape from the mid-twentieth century to the present day: homes and alleyways, diners and corner stores, markets, parks, and community hubs.
These paintings, drawings and prints preserve fleeting glimpses of a city in constant flux. Some views are familiar, while others capture scenes that would otherwise go unnoticed or that have already been lost and forgotten.
Artists including Aba Bayefsky, Albert Franck, Brian Harvey, Vello Hubel, David Marshak, Rebecca Ott and many more, offer unique insights into the character of the city's built environment, forcing us to reconsider our surroundings in a new light.
Free admission. Guided tours every Tuesday at 2 pm.
