If you have yet to see the face-lift and cleansing peal operation the Foshay Tower has undergone, then the upcoming Happy Hour with a Preservationist is for you. Hear about the challenges of its preservation and enjoy a cocktail in the glamourous lounge bar or a mouth-watering meal in the chic yet comfy new location of the longstanding Manny's Steakhouse.
The Swedes have long been known for their impeccable sense of design, but these young women bring an innovative, sensual twist to the field. From textiles to glassware, to furniture and architecture, these 17 women have made a name for themselves through their contemporary fearless designs and socially inspired solutions for everyday good design. This is a not-to-be-missed exhibit!
Opening night: Friday, Jan 29, 2010 - 6pm reception, 7pm presentation
Runs through: May 30, 2010
