OT9: Collage Party

This Saturday marks the annual Dundas Street Festival in Toronto and along with it, the annual Monkey’s Paw Collage Party. If you are in the area, I highly recommend checking it out. The Monkey’s Paw will have a table where you can create art out of old and antiquarian books and magazines that Stephen assures are beyond salvage (although people will try).

The details

Date: June 7, 2014 11:00am-4:00pm
Address: The Monkey’s Paw at 1229 Dundas St. West, Toronto

Even if you’re not into cutting and gluing up old texts in the name of art, the Dundas Street Fest still has a lot going on, including street performers, sidewalk sales, and patios upon patios laid out everywhere since they close off the street. Some pics from last year:

My collage, because who doesn't like rhinos?

Another collage form a fellow animal lover.

Street performers everywhere!

A fundraising booth where you could get your portrait
drawn by an elementary schooler for a few bucks.

Of course I had one done.

These two performers busted out a Victorian vibrator and none were
 the wiser except for the Asian guy laughing his ass off at the front.

Patios and stalls everywhere.
