Not a fully accessible building. Entrance at 266 McDermot has seven steps in the lobby, where a portion of the exhibit is displayed. Arthur Street has a ramp entrance.

Architecture has long been a prominent feature of comics. The comics page resembles the grid of a modern building, as each panel offers a window into the characters' lives. Join us in looking at how contemporary Canadian cartoonists are drawing cities, streets, and buildings, exploring architecture as spaces we inhabit and as spaces that inhabit us.

Longwalkshortdock performs live PA with live vocals, synthesizers, drum machines, guitar, effects, toys, computers and even some of his own strobes and lighting. Performances at Soundwave 2009 and Shambhala 2010 have made LWSD an artist to watch. He was featured on the legendary Annie Nightingales podcast on BBC radio 1.
