Art at the Small Arms Inspection Building

The Mississauga arts centre at 1352 Lakeshore Road East in Mississauga hosts part of the 2019 Toronto Biennial of Art. This cool facility is right across Toronto's western boundary and was converted from a wartime small arms factory into a community art forum. The bank of windows in part of the building looks out onto some great fall foliage. Photographer Judy Chicago also has a number of works featuring pyrotechnics and smoke bombs.
