Toronto, Ontario – September 18-21: We are pleased to announce the 8th Annual Manifesto Art Exhibition will be, once again, taking over Toronto and this year is slated to be bigger than ever before. The jam packed Festival of Community and Culture features an innovative program of events across the city, culminating in a massive free outdoor concert at Yonge & Dundas Square in the heart of downtown Toronto and will feature some of Toronto’s best artists and designers.
The show will feature Toronto artist, Mark Stoddart, owner and visionary behind the popular LIVE IT WEAR IT brand. Stoddart will be unveiling his highly anticipated newest addition to the collection titled “Freedom Fighters,” which will include four pieces titled: Promised Land 1968, Lil’ Bobby 1968, The Hate That Hate Produced 1965, & Past Present & Future 2012. In addition, in celebration of the 1968 Olympic protest turning 46, LIWI will also feature the latest items from the John Carlos collection.
Debuting for the first time in 2010 at Manifesto, LIWI68 quickly gained the attention of the Toronto community and became a staple at the annual exhibition. For more information pertaining to the LIWI68 brand. www.liwi68.com.
