WhatsOn Jul 31, 2017 City Centre Mirror

A new, artifact-rich exhibit at Market Gallery is currently examining and illustrating Toronto’s embrace of the maple leaf as an emblem.

The Maple Leaf Forever: Toronto’s Take on a National Symbol exhibit, on display until Nov. 25, showcases how Toronto nurtured the maple leaf into an eternal expression of Canadian identity.

“Over the past 150 years, Torontonians have constantly created associations with the maple leaf as an inspirational object representing our collective identity,” Mayor John Tory said in a statement. “This exhibition cleverly reveals the many ways that inspiration has occurred.”

From the Prince of Wales’ visit to Toronto prior to Confederation, to its use in commercial branding through the 20th century, the exhibit features more than 200 artifacts and artworks that show how Toronto has promoted the maple leaf from the 1840s to the present.

Maple Leaf Forever: Toronto’s Take on a National Symbol is presented by the city as part of TO Canada with Love, in partnership with the province’s Ontario150 program.

Market Gallery is located on the second floor of the South St. Lawrence Market, 95 Front St. E. Gallery hours are Tuesday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
