Discover Ecuadorian art at Toronto City Hall next week
  
As part of a Friendship City Agreement between the City of Toronto and the City of Quito in Ecuador, the Association of Ecuadorians in Ontario is hosting a two-week Ecuadorian Art Exhibit at Toronto City Hall. The exhibit will feature prominent Ecuadorian-based artists with works that combine indigenous creativity and the ancestral inheritance of Ecuador.

Exhibit opening ceremony:

Date: Tuesday, April 26
Time: 5 to 7 p.m.
Location: Rotunda, Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen St. W.

The art exhibit is free and will be open to the public from April 26 to May 6.

The City of Toronto and the City of Quito signed a Friendship City Agreement in 2006 to establish a relationship fostering economic development opportunities, cultural understanding and educational exchange between the two cities.

The Ecuadorian Art Exhibit is part of Toronto's inaugural Celebrate 27 Arts Fest. Arts Fest promotes the universal right of all to participate in the arts and cultural life of the community as stated in Article 27 of the United Nations' Declaration of Human Rights. More information about Celebrate 27, which is taking place throughout April, is available at http://www.toronto.ca/culture/arts-services/celebrate27.
