Marimekko was a Finnish art collective whose eye-popping fabrics literally covered Toronto back in the 60s and 70s. The show at the Textile Museum made us feel as if we’d stepped into a time machine. We found out today that the exhibit has been extended to May 12th, so make the trip. It is very trippy.
The Textile Museum is right downtown, near Dundas and University Avenue. Easy to get to on the subway. You can even get free passes at your local library if you have a library card. Danica and I like to go around the corner for a good Chinese food lunch on Dundas when we visit.
