ABOUT ART INSITE
Helping ordinary people experience extraordinary art, design, food and indie retail in Toronto — and beyond!
Art InSite, is the go-to company for art, design, food and indie retail tours of Toronto.
As a welcoming ambassador, I help visitors and Greater Toronto Area residents to enjoy the hidden treasures of the city, meet movers and shakers in the arts, and suck the juice out of the city’s culturally diverse neighbourhoods.
Founded in 1996 by arts journalist Betty Ann Jordan, Art InSite provides regular and custom tours of Toronto’s art, architecture, craft and design. The company offers regular Queen West walking tours every Saturday afternoon and group and individual walking and/or bus tour commentary of the historic Distillery District, Yorkville, University of Toronto (architecture and art), Spadina/King West, Harbourfront (including the Music Garden), Morrow Avenue, and the East End.
TOURS INCLUDE visits to the best galleries and most vibrant neighbourhoods, visits to artists’ studios, encounters with architects and designers, meetings with independent fashion designers and crafts persons and premium visits to private or corporate art collections.
Seasonal experiences include a tour of artists’ gardens at Harbourfront and tours of the Toronto International Art Fair and the Contact Month of Photography.
Purchasing art and one-of-a-kind Canadian craft, fashion and design? We can help you find the perfect thing, tapping our knowledge of galleries, dealers, boutiques, studios.
For corporate clients, Art InSite offers team-building and incentive outings, with value-added talks about appreciating and collecting art and inspirational glimpses into the inner workings of the Toronto cultural scene.
