Luminato Festival Comes to the McMichael Canadian Art Collection − Kleinburg

One of North America’s most distinguished art festivals is coming to Vaughan. As the Luminato Festival returns to Toronto this summer, from June 6 to 13 the McMichael Canadian Art Collection in Kleinburg will house the Festival’s first-ever exhibit to be commissioned outside of the city.“I think it’s very important. It’s part of the human spirit, part of city building,” says Maurizio Bevilacqua, mayor of Vaughan. “We can never forget the human spirit. Human connection is extremely important, and the arts, music, culture are really the great connector.”

The exhibit consists of two new installation pieces, tomorrow’s snow and a way to the light, by internationally recognized Beijing-born, Canadian-raised artist Terence Koh. Both pieces will be performed on the gallery’s outdoor grounds at night. “Terence’s piece is about landscape,” says Jorn Weisbrodt, artistic director of Luminato Festival. “[The McMichael] is the home of Canadian landscape. He’s Canadian, so this is the perfect place to do it.”
