Power Plant Contemporary Gallery is free for 2020

The tall, branded smokestack marks the location of the gallery at Toronto's Harbourfront. BMO Financial Group has made it possible for the gallery to have free admission for all of 2020. Once an actual power plant for the Toronto Terminal Warehouse, now known as Queen's Quay Terminal, the building was converted into an art gallery in 1987 that exhibits contemporary art along with other talks and events.

Governed by its board of directors, The Power Plant serves a strong network of community stakeholders and is a registered Canadian charitable organization, supported by its members, sponsors, donors, and funding bodies at all levels of government."
