Thursday Doors – August 18, 2016

“Art Centre Doors” - University of Toronto

This week’s submission to Norm 2.0‘s Thursday Doors.

Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favourite door photos from around the world.

Another of many images made during my tour of the University of Toronto campus.

The door above belongs to the University of Toronto Art Museum. I did not know that the U of T had an art museum. Shortly after making this image, I went to the Art Gallery of Ontario for an exhibit of paintings by Lawren Harris and, sure enough, one of the paintings in the exhibit was on loan for the U of T Art Museum. Isn’t it strange how, shortly after discovering something new, you come across it in your life?

This door attracted my attention primarily because if the detailed carving above it, and it’s a wonderful dark oak door with lots of interest in the glass panels. The doors stops seem to have had better days and have not been gently used.

  1. Like you, I didn’t know U of T had an art museum either. Another thing to add to my list!!

    It’s a beautiful door. I’m guessing that each of the symbols in the window panes has a meaning.

  2. I love the etchings in the glass panels as well as the carvings in the arch above the door.
    Another place to add to my list the next time I’m in Toronto.

  3. Just an observation that there are 4 glass etchings that are not matched anywhere. See if you can find them.
