Imago Mundi is about Art and the World without borders — a democratic, collective and global map-in-the-making of human culutres at the start of the third millenium — as envisioned by Luciano Benetton, art patron and creator of United Colors of Benetton. With a single format, 10 x 12 cm, the entire international Imago Mundi collection brings together artists from every continent: to date, more than 25,000 from over 150 countries.

Onsite Gallery gratefully acknowledges that the new gallery construction project is funded in part by the Government of Canada's Canada Cultural Spaces Fund at Canadian Heritage, the City of Toronto through a Section 37 agreement and Aspen Ridge Homes; with gallery furniture by Nienkämper. Onsite Gallery logo by Dean Martin Design.
