Art exhibit, August 5 to December 31

Louisa Pipkin was a freedom seeker, who escaped enslavement in the United States and came to Canada where she worked as a laundress in the 1870s for the Austin family, the founders of the Dominion Bank of Canada and the homeowners of Spadina. Dis/Mantle is inspired by the real Mrs. Pipkin and the efforts of Black abolitionists.

Explore Spadina Museum from August 5 to December 31 for the Dis/Mantle art exhibit. Related programming includes Dis/Mantle Evening: Mrs. Pipkin’s Manor on August 5 and 6 and an artist talk and tour with Gordon Shadrach on September 17.
