Queen Mary Park Poster Project: Window galleries are so pandemic hot right now, which makes perfect sense — but SNAP had its display front face planned all along when it opened its new location on 115 Street a year back.
What they have up behind glass right now is sort of the culmination of an ongoing “hello” project where four print artists with ties to the neighbourhood were asked to make posters — including an interactive survey — to post throughout the neighbourhood.
You can still see some of the Sanaa Humayan, Ana Smith, Grace Panineau-Couture and Alex Keays posters on telephone poles, but SNAP also collected them and made a bit of a collage at the gallery space. Graeme Dearden is also doing a CMYK layer separation demo 2 p.m. – 5 p.m. over in SNAP’s education department, head to snapartists.com for details.

The Changin’ Times of Ike White (2019): Daniel Vernon’s documentary about Ike White, who recorded the first-ever commercial album made by an inmate inside the American prison system.
The album was produced by Jerry Goldstein (War, Sly and the Family Stone) and Stevie Wonder lobbied for the musician’s early release — who then disappeared off the grid for 40 years! A fascinating story of redemption. 77 minutes.
