Canada’s Birthday Portrait – June 25 – August 25

This exhibition focuses on the creation, dissemination and alteration of Canada’s trademark art image, The Fathers of Confederation. This iconic Canadian image has decorated the walls of Parliament, the pages of history books and even cookie tins. More recently, it has been criticized by the brushstrokes of various contemporary artists, who seek to tell the unwritten and unacknowledged stories and narratives that hide beneath the canvas of Canada’s contested history. Canada’s Birthday Portrait will explore the impressions that the image has made on Canadian society and culture, including a special connection to Toronto, through kitsch, collectables, fine art and more.

Hogtown: The Immersive Experience Returns to Campbell House

The Campbell House Museum and The Hogtown Collective invite you to our 2017 summer production of Drew Carnwath & Sam Rosenthal’s HOGTOWN: The Immersive Experience.

Back by popular demand, the show Toronto Life, the Globe and Mail and CBC called ‘Must see!’ and received four stars (NNNN) from NOW Magazine. Starting July 13th and now extended until August 20th, HOGTOWN is unlike anything you’ve ever seen, heard or felt at the theatre — until now.

Immerse yourself in an evening filled with young flappers and Moonshiners, Temperance Ladies and politicians, power brokers and police, speakeasies and gambling dens. New adventures are brewing at the Campbell House. Choose new characters and storylines to follow. No two performances are ever alike! Everyone’s got something at stake, a heart to break, or a deal to make. Now, let’s party like it’s 1926!
