“Foreground of Hart House and University College” is one of six pieces by Nicholas Hornyansky in the Art Museum at the University of Toronto. Hornyansky was a Canadian-Hungarian artist who moved to Canada in 1929. His work includes many local scenes, including Hart House, Convocation Hall, University College, and the Soldiers’ Tower. The Art Museum is made up of the Justina M. Barnicke Gallery at Hart House, and the University of Toronto Art Centre at University College. It’s one of the largest gallery spaces for visual art exhibitions and programming in Toronto.

Not so funny

Re: How Nice editorial cartoon (October 2018)
