NOW names The Leona Drive Project top art show of 2009

Now Magazine, one of Toronto's major news and entertainment weeklies has named The Leona Drive Project number one on their list of top ten art shows of 2009. According to the magazine the exhibition "vividly evoked the postwar suburban experience."

The Leona Drive Project ran in Willowdale, Ontario between October 22 and 31, 2009. The exhibition was curated by Visible City Co-Director Janine Marchessault and Michael Prokopow, and was a collaboration between The Public Access Collective and LOT: Experiments in Urban Research. The Project commissioned over twenty artists to produce community-oriented, site specific projects and installations across six bungalows slated for demolition.
