Pre-wiring for Artscape

Every year it seems like preparations for Artscape get earlier and earlier. Here are some pictures I took of the placement of power boxes and prewiring for such boxes mainly along Mount Royal Avenue (the one with the construction crew was on Preston St just behind Cultural Center station)

    merit badge: Chess, no really.

    Tony Award winning play “A
    Raisin in the Sun
    .” Not only that but the two previews on Weds\Thurs were
    only $25…but I didn’t attend either due to the rain. Sadly after tonight, the

  • Spotlighters is hosting a comedy
    to benefit its new ADA renovations.
