Perseverance to Preservation: How the Bank of Montreal Provincial Panels got to Guild Park - Slide Show curated by Kate Kennedy
Personal letters, notes and memos detail a year long negotiation for the preservation and safe acquisition of the bas relief sculptural panels we now refer to as the Provincial Panels.  Almost lost, to demolition and the stone cutter’s saw, these 18 pieces of Canadian sculptural history continue to tell the story of Toronto’s architectural and artistic past thanks to the foresight and perseverance of Spencer Clark.
