Hazelton Lanes Hosts Inaugural Arts Festival in Yorkville

“Hazelton Lanes Hosts Inaugural Arts Festival in Yorkville in Collaboration with OCAD University and First Capital Realty

- 22 artists from OCAD present their work at Hazelton Lanes May 9 to 19, 2013 -

Hazelton Lanes invites Torontonians to the Hazelton Lanes Arts Festival from Thursday May 9 to Sunday May 19, presented in collaboration with the Faculty of Art at OCAD University and First Capital Realty.

Showcasing the extraordinary talent of OCAD’s emerging contemporary artists, the exhibition features a diverse mix of events as well as artwork in disciplines ranging from photography, painting, print and site-specific installations.

For 10 days, OCAD’s artists take over Hazelton Lane’s Oval Square, turning the centre’s common space into a pop-up gallery. The highly anticipated exhibit promises to be an exciting event as it features juried work by 21 artists, including art by current students and recent graduates, says Dr. Sara Diamond, President and Vice-Chancellor of OCAD University. “This is exactly the kind of partnership that OCAD University celebrates. The festival will provide an opportunity for visitors to admire stunning original works of art, meet up-and-coming artists, and even acquire pieces from the next generation of Canada’s great artists.”

In addition, the festival hosts a series of events with featured artists, lectures by OCAD University professors, as well as performances and musical accompaniment from musicians at JAZZ FM.

In its inaugural edition, the festival is titled Unfolding the Oval Square, since the event will be hosted in this unique common space at Hazelton Lanes. “We’re proud to support the youth and the arts while contributing to the continued flourishing culture of our city,” says Dori J. Segal, President and CEO of First Capital Realty Inc.  “Celebrating arts, culture and community is important to First Capital Realty.  Our support for OCAD U builds on previous successful collaborations, which have led to public art competitions and other inspiring projects”.
