Field Trip to Gladstone House

November 2021

VCR 4 residents had the chance to enjoy a creative and inspiring afternoon of at Gladstone House. Gladstone House is Toronto's longest continuously operating hotel located in West Queen West. Built in 1889, the hotel features historical elements - such as restored brick walls and a hand-operated elevator - paired with contemporary art and design. During this field trip, residents toured the amazing drawings, paintings, textiles and sculptures showcased throughout the building. 

A big THANK YOU to Lee Petrie, Curator at Gladstone, and VCR Mentor Fausta Facciponte, for the amazing tour!
