Is an exhibition that brings a fraction of Toller Cranston's prolific artistic work to Northern Ontario. Much of the work in the exhibition was created in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico where Cranston retired from skating and took up a brush full-time until his death in 2015. Toller Cranston was a well-known skater who changed the men's figure skating by incorporating a more expressive style of movement in his routines. His artistic style extended far beyond the rink to touch every aspect of his world, including his house and studio in Mexico where he embellished every surface with his bold shapes and colours.

Created in partnership with the Kirkland Lake Contemporary Art Council, the Museum of Northern History, the KL Centennial Committee, and Artworld Fine Art, Sollano 84 is a sister show to Strawberry Journey: A Toller Cranston Story, on show at the Museum of Northern History in Kirkland Lake from April 5 until May 4.
