Attack of the Posters

artworldcity.gifIt’s Denzil Minnan-Wong’s worst nightmare: Posters everywhere! Not just posters on the street corners or on bulletin boards, but in his workplace. Minnan-Wong, who is scared of posters that are not in his election campaigns, now must face them on a daily basis (because there are none in his riding…). Everyday until April 10, the Porsche-driving city councilor with the receding hairline will be tip-toeing by City Hall’s Artcity Festivals Poster Exhibit, with posters staring at him from every angle. At day four, the first ever poster bonanza holds a “display of artposters from world famous festivals and events held every year in Toronto.” Posters range from hilarious to not-funny to, in Minnan-Wong’s case, intimidating. Better than any of those Imaginus poster sales, and free. Open 10 a.m. till 10 p.m.
