A brand new exhibition entitled Morphology runs until November 3 and offers a unique opportunity to see the transformation of the Jim Tovey Lakeview Conservation Area through the eyes of local photographers. This project along Mississauga’s waterfront will provide a green oasis in the heart of the city with beaches, meadows, forests, wetlands, and rocky islands. The late Jim Tovey, Peel Regional Councillor for Mississauga Ward I, was a strong supporter of the project and saw artistic expression as a way for residents to form an emotional connection with the environment. Exhibit created in partnership with Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) and Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA).
