Toronto Art + Culture Exhibition ReviewHeya! Last week I visited the Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery at the Harbourfront Centre in Toronto to enjoy their newest exhibit Pedro Reyes: Sanatorium. This was the first time I visited this beautifully located museum, and after my initial visit, it will not be by last.

Walkable Planets Community Art Project ReviewThere are so many cool and interesting things to do and places to explore in Toronto. So many that even Torontonians don't know about them all or haven't visited them, like the Toronto Public Labyrinth. A great way to explore and learn about this amazing city is to take part in organized tours.
There are a lot of city and site specific tours that cost money, like The Steam Whistle Brewing Tour. But a unique and economical way to explore Toronto is to take advantage of one of the many free walking tours, both guided by volunteers or self-guided, organized by Jane's Walk. Jane's Walk was founded in Toronto by a group of friends and colleagues of Jane Jacobs, who "believed in walkable neighbourhoods, urban literacy, and cities planned for and by people." Jane's Walk organizes free locally led walking tours "in which people get together to explore, talk about, and celebrate their neighbourhoods" in over 100 cities across the globe. Please visit Jane's Walk to find out more information on walks around Toronto and other cities.
