CAFKA + Walper Hotel + great art = cultural profit

City Hall test 2 101

Yes, this is *exactly* what you think it is: a bicycle absolutely caked with paperclips.  CAFKA connected some great artists and their work with The Walper Hotel in DTK and the reception was Thursday night.  Show runs through Aug 11.  Def check it out.

Artists are Laura De Decker (Waterloo, ON), Dave Dyment (Toronto, ON), Manuela Lalic (Montréal, QC), Tor Lukasic-Foss (Hamilton, ON), Ellen Moffat (Saskatoon, SK), Janet Morton (Guelph, ON), Daniel Olson (Montréal, QC), and Stephanie Vegh (Hamilton, ON)
