About ArtWalk in the Square
ArtWalk in the Square will be a three-day, public fine art exhibition showcasing established and emerging artists at the CF Shops at Don Mills, is where fashion, dining and entertainment come outside to play. Visit Ontario’s first and finest open-air centre with exceptional shops, restaurants and services surrounding a lovely Town Square. This upscale centre hosts shops such as Anthropologie, Michael Kors and Roots combined with restaurants, coffee shops and the Cineplex VIP movie theatre. Last year, the Shops at Don Mills tracked over 17,000 unique visitors to the square during ArtWalk in the Square, with store sales up 2% over the weekend.
ArtWalk in the Square will be juried and we anticipate room for about 100 artists. Artist Awards in Photography, Painting, Mixed Media, and Other Media have been created through exciting new sponsorships with local organizations and businesses. We are working with the local retailers to create additional showing opportunities such as cross promotions and a windows program.
