Guaranteed to stimulate imaginations and spark creative thinking, the Brick Bros. Circus is a complete, miniature one-ring circus, performed by highly trained building bricks in itty bitty costumes. See the acrobatic Bildovitch family, the breathtaking Madame Brikaskova, the amazing Brick Contortionist and much much more!

Art Activities and Workshops


Drop-in Family Art Workshop

Time: 11:00 to 4:00 pm
Location: Education Space
All Ages

Inspired by the vibrant work of Rajni Perera, children will use a variety of mixed media including fabrics and photographs to explore the idea of the self-portrait.


Spotlight On: Gathie Falk and William Kurelek, Public Tour

Time: 12:30 to 1:30 pm
Location: Starting in the Grand Hall
All Ages

Delve into the worlds of Gathie Falk and William Kurelek in this docent-led Spotlight Tour.

The tour starts with William Kurelek and will focus on the McMichael’s major new acquisition of a suite of 16 paintings entitled Jewish Life in Canada. Painted in the mid-1970s, Ukrainian-Canadian Kurelek intended the suite as a gesture across the cultural divide, demonstrating his open-mindedness toward Canadians of cultural and religious backgrounds different from his own. The tour continues with Gathie Falk: Revelations where visitors will explore piles of fruit, floating cabbages, and expanses of brightly coloured flowerbeds by one of Canada’s most visionary and experimental artists.


Performance: Brick Bros Circus performed by Puppetmongers

Time: 12:30 pm and 2:30 pm
Location: Gallery 8
All Ages

This inventive play delights audiences of all ages, bringing the world of play, creativity, and performance to life, brick by brick by brick. Guaranteed to stimulate imaginations and spark creative thinking, the Brick Bros. Circus is a complete, miniature one-ring circus, performed by highly trained building bricks in itty bitty costumes. See the acrobatic Bildovitch family, the breathtaking Madame Brikaskova, the amazing Brick Contortionist and much much more!


Spotlight On: Conversations, Public Tour

Time: 2:00 to 3:00 pm
Location: Starting in the Grand Hall
All Ages

This docent-led tour leads visitors through the Canadian art pantheon in our new exhibition Conversations which features diverse works selected from the Gallery’s extensive permanent collection. Aimed to convey something of its current breadth and taking particular pleasure in placing apparently disparate works in creative conversation with one another, the tour will explore works from the Group of Seven, Emily Carr, David Milne, Kenoujuak Ashevak, Rebecca Belmore, Edward Burtynsky, Prudence Heward, Gershon Iskowitz, Tom Thomson and others.
