Gallery City takes place in eight distinct districts spanning Eglinton Avenue from Weston Road to Victoria Park Avenue, part of Metrolinx and Crosslinx Transit Solutions’ efforts to support and promote local businesses, art and artists in various communities during construction of the LRT. Following a special launch event June 21, Gallery City opened June 30 and will continue until Sept. 3.
