Continues until August 31 Spadina Museum is proud to participate in this fundraising project for the Baycrest Foundation and to stimulate discussion and awareness of aging and brain health. It will shine a light on age-related dementia, such as Alzheimer's and the need for more research into how we can maintain optimal cognitive well-being at any age. Spadina Museum will host a brain sculpture created by an artist working in the medium of their choice.
Sunday, August 21 (1 or 3 p.m.) Calling all Downton Abbey fans! Live the drama and opulence of the 1920s in a tour of Spadina Museum, Toronto's Downton Abbey. Immerse yourself in the world of the hit TV show as we compare and contrast the fictional life of the Crawley's with Spadina's Austin family. The tour will take you from our simple servant quarters to a drawing room elegant enough to impress the Dowager Countess! Pre-registration required.
Sundays: August 14 & 28, 3 p.m. This class will be led by certified yoga instructor Diane Grundy, who has been practicing yoga and studying yoga philosophy for over 5 years.
