Pillars of Change

Mon Jun 14 to Sep 05, 2021, All Day

Part of the Community Arts Space

The Gardiner Museum and No.9 Contemporary Art & The Environment have partnered to encourage action on important social and environmental issues, and amplify the work of prominent and emerging BIPOC and 2SLGBTQ+ identifying artists. The Pillars of Change project is rooted in No.9’s Pillars of Sustainability, nine essential components for cultivating healthy communities: Open Green Space, Food Security, Green Building Design, Alternative Energy, Civic Engagement & Leadership, Public Art & Design, Waste Management, Water Management, and Transportation.

Each artist has created poster artwork in both an open edition—a version that can be customized and remixed by you—and an artist edition. The artist editions are now on display in our street-level light box signs.

Personalize your Pillars of Change artwork and share your creation with us online for the chance to see it displayed in large-scale formats, like digital billboards, around Toronto. This project is open to all ages and abilities!
