Gallery open for viewing from 11am to 4pm
Office Space/Public Space: Dean Baldwin and
J.C. Heywood: A Life in Layers

Craftification from 10am - 2 pm, City Centre Drive, between the Civc Centre and Central Library.

Taking part in the City of Mississauga's Canada Day Celebrations, the Art Gallery of Mississauga will bring the Church of Craft to City Centre Drive. The street will be closed to traffic allowing the Church of Craft to guide children in a re-imagining of the city street. Turning the asphalt into a green garden and the electrical poles into soft, colourful structures the artist collective will guide the ambitious project teaching fundamental craft skills such as stitching, knitting, and embroidery and to all ages. City Centre Drive will be transformed into a masterpiece by taking those uninhabited concrete spaces and renovating them into bright active areas.
