Last Chance to See Toronto's Own -- Celebrating People in Art and Artifacts
Culture --- Toronto's Own, a City of Toronto exhibition that explores the
fascinating stories of the people of Toronto, is on display at the Joseph D.
Carrier Art Gallery at the Columbus Centre for only 12 more days. This exhibit
consists of more than 100 remarkable historical and contemporary works from the
City of Toronto's collection of art and artifacts.

The show, in celebration of the millennium, offers the opportunity to discover
and celebrate the people who have lived and worked in Toronto through the
years. It is presented by the City of Toronto's Culture Division, Economic
Development, Culture and Tourism department, in partnership with the Joseph D.
Carrier Art Gallery at the Columbus Centre.

Some of the highlights of the exhibition are Mary Hastings Meyer's painting
"View of Toronto, 1855," the whimsical work by Allan Moak, "I is for Island
