Catch the flavour of 19th century Toronto on this guided tour of the largest and best-preserved collection of Victorian-era industrial architecture in North America. Next, we stop at the Corkin Gallery to hear architect, Brigitte Shim talk about its award-winning design by Shim-Sutcliffe Architects. Gallery premises are an adaptation of the historic distillery infrastructure which re-purposes the building for contemporary use. The Corkin Gallery concludes the official tour, but you are free to stay on and wander the pedestrian-only, cultural village and sample its tempting boutiques, galleries, sculpture park, cafés, bakeries, art studios and distinctive “only-at-the-Distillery” shops. Plan to continue your visit into the evening with ARLIS friends with an optional dinner at one of the Distillery restaurants. A group reservation will be made at the popular Mill Street Brew Pub.
