Ryerson Image Centre

@RyersonU in #Toronto will open the Ryerson Image Centre (RIC) in the new Image Arts Building on Saturday September 29, 2012. The new addition to the University will be an academic and research facility that will also showcase their artistic and cultural collections with free public exhibitions. RIC sits to the left of the rock garden and pond in the photo above - the floppy guys in Ryerson University colours seem pretty happy to hear about the upcoming opening.
"The Ryerson Image Centre is an international academic facility for teaching, research and exhibitions, but it is also a terrific opportunity to make so many of Ryerson's holdings - amazing images and works of art - accessible to the public," said Sheldon Levy, President of Ryerson University. "We are thrilled to be opening this new gallery in the heart of our campus, in the heart of our city."
The Grand Opening Exhibition will be Archival Dialogues: Reading the Black Star Collection from September 29 to December 16, 2012. New works inspired by the Black Star Collection will be shown by Stephen Andrews, Christina Battle, Marie-Hélène Cousineau, Stan Douglas, Vera Frenkel, Vid Ingelevics, David Rokeby and Michael Snow.

The downtown campus has been expanding rapidly at Yonge and Gould in the past few years as new buildings are added and additional campus satellite locations like the Ted Rogers School of Management in the Eaton Centre are opened.

Construction has really just started on the Yonge Street property just north of Gould Street which will be the Student Learning Centre. Partnering with Loblaws they have completely redone Maple Leaf Gardens with a grocery store and a new sports facility. The new Image Arts building was designed by Diamond Schmitt Architects and features programmable illuminated glass walls and arts-dedicated LED screens. .
