DSC_0272 Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre recently commissioned six visual artists to capture the complexities of the nine rivers that feed into Lake Ontario. The results make up the┬ábeautiful outdoor art exhibit at the Harbourfront Centre entitled NINE RIVERS CITY.

After months of planning, work, and the generous sponsorship of Menkes, artists Aaron Vincent Elkaim, Vanessa Hussey, Surendra Lawoti, Christopher Manson, Jade Lee Portelli and Meghan Rennie compiled incredible photographs of each river that runs through Toronto’s landscape.

The exhibit showcases how the waterways connect, attract, and mystify people.

A special preview of the exhibit was held on June 20th and BuzzBuzzHome was there to snap some pics of the artwork and event, check them out below!

Guests enjoyed food and drinks throughout the event and were able to meet and speak with the artists.
