Book Launch : The Artists Who Created the Art At Queen's Park

On Thursday, March 7, at 7:00 p.m., at Queen's Park, the O.A.F.P. hosted a book launch party. The party was a celebration of the release of its second publication, entitled:

"The Artists Who Created The Art At Queen's Park". To our knowledge this is the first book ever written about the artists whose work adorns the hallways of Queen's Park.

This 80-page magazine style book features 32 artists, 8 of whom were interviewed. Six of those artists attended the book launch and spoke about their work.

The book is a special edition of "The InFormer", O.A.F.P.'s quarterly publication, and was made possible because of the generosity of former Lieutenant Governor, Hon. Henry Jackman who was in attendance at the event.

"The Artists Who Created The Art At Queen's Park" is a gift from our Association to the Legislature of Ontario, to augment the public art tours. A copy of the book was formally presented by our Chair, David Warner, to Speaker Ted Arnott at the launch.

A video recording was made of the event and it can be watched here:
