Stay for the 7pm exhibition opening of Ian Chodikoff's show entitled 'Fringe Benefits: Cosmopolitan Dynamics of a Multicultural City'. The exhibition explores questions and ideas that will influence the future identity of suburbs - a geography constantly evolving into something much more dynamic than big-box retail outlets and housing subdivisions. Through photography, video, maps and art, the exhibition explores the surprising ways in which diverse contemporary multiculturalism is shaping our suburbs and improving the quality of our cosmopolitan city. On through July 9 - September 23. Be one of the first to see this great exhibition!
