Small jewel of an exhibit. As others said, this is in the TD Towers, which makes it near a lot of other things downtown (CN Tower, Rogers Centre, St. Lawerence Market) and so worth 30 minutes of popping in. There is no signage, so go into the building, see the few objects and paintings in the lobby of the Tower, and then go up the stairs to the mezzanine level. You will see statues depicting life and stories from 1950s to the 2020s. Worth the stop!

First time visit to Toronto. It was very cold but excellent trip to Niagara Falls. Snow on arrival & bitterly cold but dressed for the conditions. Bars were excellent. Good good & comedy club very good too & tickets were cheap.

The Inuit gallery is in the South Tower of the 4 black towers that make up the TD Centre, downtown. This is one of the rare FREE activities in Toronto and will take up probably no more than 30 or 40 minutes of your day. There is a lower level window gallery at the west end of the elevator waiting areas. Then, you go up a flight of stairs to the main display of cases, each featuring several Inuit carvings. It is not easy to find a place in the city that displays a good selection of Inuit art, apart from the Art Gallery of Ontario, which costs about $20 to get into. If you want a good introduction to Canada's indigenous Inuit art, this is the place to go. The only drawback is the endless 'pinging' of the elevators nearby - not exactly a place to contemplate art. But, you should go, nonetheless. Be sure to see the cows on the nearby lawn, too, and the elephants at the CIBC Centre on the other side of Bay Street. Enjoy!

While visiting Canadian friends with some friends from home, we went on daytrips to Toronto twice, using the GO Train from Aldershot Train Station in Burlington. The train goes into Union Station in a section of the Financial District in Downtown Toronto on Front Street.

While touring this area, we went to Toronto Dominion Gallery of Intuit Art.

Admission was free.

We found a lot of small sculpture of animals and figures hunting and fishing as those activities were important parts of the Intuit way of life.

There were two whimsical sculpture figures. The first depicted a man playing an electric guitar that was plugged into a portable amp. The other was of a man listening to an iPod.

I particularly liked a stonecut print titled "Seagulls" by Helen Kalvak. It showed four in flight.

We found the exhibit interesting. We were happy to see that this art was being collected somewhere.

We rate the Toronto Dominion Gallery of Intuit Art at 5.0. We highly recommend a visit.

I have collected Inuit Art over the years. This was a very good display of pieces that are remarkable but which would have very high cost to buy. They are well displayed and not too many pieces. Most unusual at least for me. There are stores in Toronto which have good pieces to sell and in a range one may be able to afford and some are quite pleasing to the eye.

A marvelous little exhibition space featuring Inuit art in the TD Tower @ 79 Wellington. It is on the right side as you enter the building and continues up the stairs to the mezzanine. Sculptures in stone are primarily featured but there are also some fine works in bone, antler and ivory (on the ground level). Especially noteworthy is a carved walrus tusk with more than a dozen animals and figures. Too bad it (and some others) were placed on the bottom of the exhibit case and hard to see and appreciate.
There is also a very informative brochure which explains the art and the exhibits. Very nice!

It's basically a small collection of glass-cased pieces in the lobby and mezzanine of the TD building. The pros: it's free, there are some really nice pieces, it's dead quiet except for the elevator dinging. The cons: it's tiny, the exhibits are crammed together so tightly you can't really appreciate them, not a lot of info about the pieces or artists.
If you are in the area, it is well worth stepping in for a few moments of calm. If you are making a special trip-- especially in the rain as we were-- you might just be a little let down.

This is a great stop for those of you touring downtown Toronto and looking for something different to do. A great way to introduce yourself or your kids to Inuit Art. Highly recommended!

An interesting gallery of Inuit sculpture from about the 1950s onward . Very hard to find as it is not signed in any way . Truly lovely collection and well worth seeking it out. For our entire visit we were the only viewers which was great

This is a very impressive collection of inuit art and the most interesting thing is that it's free. At some other places in Toronto you need to pay and didn't have the chance to see such works.
