Toronto To NYC: Art Roadtrip
Friday, January 29, 2010
I guess I will have to live vicariously through the internet when it comes to neat travel ideas happening back home in Toronto. Look out NYC, a wave of Torontonians are headed your way!
The Star gives us a heads up of what´s going to be happening February 24th to the 28th: a bus-load of Toronto´s art appreciators are road-trippin’ it to the Big Apple. The event, presented by the group METHINKS, was organized in order to soak in as much of the artistic culture from the city that never sleeps.
I assume that no one will be sleeping as the itinerary is extensive. Activities include: a jazz club in Harlem, a ¨cheap, fast, loud concert of some local punk-rock music,¨ having some good eats, and, of course, gallery hopping. The METHINKS website also brought to my attention that Toronto local, Nicholas Di Genova, has his solo exhibit happening simultaneously with the Canadian invasion at the Fredericks and Frasier Gallery. What chance!
The whole thing costs $414.95 (Canadian) which includes round-trip bus, hostels and activities. Could a trip to NYC be any better? Methinks not.
