About this Event

The Art Gallery of Mississauga is grateful to welcome visitors back and to bring a shared art experience into the lives of many, once again.

We’re excited to be showcasing the border crossings project in the Freeman gallery.

November 7th, 2020 to January 7th, 2021

Listen and view the stories that have impacted and changed the lives of Artists and our community, told through various forms of art. Come ready to experience emotions, beauty and resilience. Leave with a new understanding of the borders we all face daily and a better sense of community and connection.

We all have a border crossing story to tell.

Borders are challenges faced physically, emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually. They can both connect and divide, shared by the art of story telling. Recognizing and sharing these border crossings allows us to understand ourselves and others differently. Instead of groups of people separated by arbitrary distinctions, we are all individuals who experience pivotal moments of change that shape the contours of the narratives of our lives. Come and explore these stories.

The border crossings Project is generously funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation through the Grow Grant, the Ontario Arts Council and City of Mississauga’s Cultural Division .

Visitors will need to book timed-entry tickets in advance prior to their arrival.

The health and safety of our staff and visitors is our top priority. We have implemented the following measures to ensure you have a safe and fun experience:

• Time-ticketing - please book your ticket online and in advance before visiting the Gallery. We are limiting the number of people in the Gallery at any one time to allow for physical distancing. This also means you aren’t standing in line for long.

• We are open Monday through Friday from 10:00am to 5:00pm – this will help us maintain our high standards of cleanliness and give you a safe and enjoyable experience. Please note that viewing is limited to 1 hour per visitor per day. You may schedule your arrival at any time throughout the day.

• We have increased our cleaning schedule and will be disinfecting high touch and high traffic areas multiple times a day.

• Clearly marked directional flow and extensive signage to help visitors experience the Gallery safely.

• Visitors must wear face coverings and undergo a health survey upon arrival at the gallery. The AGM has placed hand sanitizer throughout the gallery and has installed signs to encourage one-way traffic.

Please register your preferred date and estimated time of arrival. Please note that viewing is limited to 1 hour per visit.
