As part of a Friendship City agreement between Toronto and the City of Quito in Ecuador, the City of Toronto and the Association of Ecuadorians in Ontario will host the opening ceremonies to launch the week-long Ecuadorian Art Exhibit at Toronto City Hall. The exhibit will feature prominent Ecuadorian artists from both Ecuador and Toronto with works that combine indigenous creativity and the ancestral inheritance of Ecuador.

Opening Ceremony:

Date: Monday, April 27
Time: 5 to 7 p.m.

The opening ceremony will be open to the public and will feature a rare collection of Ecuadorian stamps, musical performances and presentations. The art exhibit is also free and will be open to the public for viewing from April 27 to May 1.
