For 30 years, Artspace has housed 22 arts organizations, including Cinematheque Theatre, an Platform Gallery, Pool Side Gallery, two publishing houses, studios for filmmakers, painters, writers, and playwrights, a luthier, and much more, in order to place art at the centre of the Exchange District. The grand dame of the Exchange, the Gault Building, stands as a great example of Richardsonian Romanesque architecture and has been transformed into an art hub with Artspace at its helm. Even though there is a wealth of contemporary art taking form inside its walls, the building is a great example of historical preservation. Tours will also include access to the roof where one of three rooftop ‘fencing’ frames the panoramic view. Note: there is no wheelchair access to the rooftop and children under 12 yrs of age will not be permitted to go on the roof.
