Art Spin June 15th - Humber Bay
2017 Season – along the waterfront: portage to portlands
Join us to kick off our 2017 season!
Grab your bike and meet us at the north High Park Entrance (1873 Bloor St. - just south of the main gates) at **NEW TIME** 7:30pm to check-in and get your wristband. Tour leaves at 8pm sharp and lasts until around 10:00pm at which point we’ll arrive at our after party.
This tour features the première of three new site-specific projects commissioned by Art Spin. Each project, ranging from dance to video, has been created specifically for our audience and located along a unique site at the waterfront. We’re excited to be working with Jenn Goodwin and Thom Sokoloski to present special projects by each artist respectively, along with a co-presentation with Myseum of Toronto that has three artists collaborating for the very first time, Driftnote, Francesca Chudnoff, and Aria Evans in response to the rising waters of Lake Ontario. In addition to these new works, we have artist and urban geographer Daniel Rotsztain in our roving Rickshaw Residency.
Want to skip all the art programming and just wear out your dancing shoes? The after party of our tour is free and you are welcome to meet us there! Join us after 10pm at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 344 (1395 Lakeshore Blvd. West) for drinks, dancing, and an amazing view of the water from their spectacular lakeside patio. Music will be provided by our partners CDR and DJ General Eclectic.
For the safety and enjoyment of our audience, Art Spin is a fairweather event. Our official rain date for the June 15th tour is Thursday June 22nd. Ticketholders will be notified day-of in case of any rescheduling due to weather.
TICKETING - CHANGES THIS YEAR:
To streamline the event, we will no longer be offering ticket sales on site, online ticket sales only. This will help reduce wait times at the start of each event. If an online purchase is a barrier to you joining please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some of our devoted Art Spinners will notice that ticket prices have risen to $10 this year. We strive to keep our event as accessible as possible, but to properly compensate our artists and create the best possible experience for you we’ve had to make this increase. Looking for savings? Buy a season pass and get three Art Spin Tours for the price of two!

ABOUT ART SPIN TOURS:
Art Spin is a roving curatorial project that situates commissioned, site-specific works in unique public spaces throughout the city. Each Art Spin tour gathers a large audience on bicycles to visit the multidisciplinary installations and performances in a one-of-a-kind event. With few details released beforehand, Art Spin tours ask you to trust the curators and allow yourselves to be surprised by both the creative programming and the unusual spaces to which they lead you.
