Now in its 60th year, the Toronto Outdoor Art Fair (TOAF), Canada’s largest and longest-running contemporary outdoor art fair has been a key part in launching and sustaining the careers of Canadian artists by directly connecting them to millions of art lovers, and public and private institutions. TOAF has been a longstanding supporter of OCAD U students and graduates. At the beginning of July, ten talented OCAD U students/grads exhibited their work in an online curated showcase from July 2-11 as part of the OCAD U TOAF Career Launcher.  

This year, we’re excited to celebrate the achievements of the many OCAD U students and graduates who received awards at the fair! Congratulations to:
