Frances Loring and Florence Wyle: Their Wills and Testaments, and The Sculpture Fund

Wednesday July 4, 6-8 pm
E.P. Taylor Library & Archives, Art Gallery of Ontario

Join Vancouver-based 221A Fellow Amy Nugent at the E.P. Taylor Library & Archives for a special Toronto Art Book Fair Week event devoted to the Wills and Testaments of sculptors Frances Loring (1887–1968) and Florence Wyle (1881–1968). The event centres around a reading of the artists’ wills, highlighting their unfulfilled wishes to have a Sculpture Fund for Canadian art acquisition. 221A has published a limited edition artists’ book which pairs the wills drafted by the artists together in 1963. The evening will also feature a display of photographs and documents selected from Loring and Wyle’s archives at the AGO.

Automated captioning is available for all online programs. Please provide three weeks advance notice for requests for Verbal Description, American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation and/or live captioning for AGO programming. The AGO will make every effort to provide accommodation for requests made with less than three weeks notice. Please contact us to make a request for these accommodations. Learn more about accessibility at the AGO.
