Just a few weeks ago on September 23rd, EQ3 launched Generation Art with a special event that took place at EQ3’s Flagship location in Toronto’s Liberty Village. EQ3 flew in all winning artists from all corners of Canada to Toronto for a 4-day trip for two to attend the launch event and enjoy the local sites.

This year, Generation Art is made up of pillows, ottomans, beanbags, paper napkins, ceramics mugs and serving platters.

 

 


 

Generation Art is available now at the EQ3 flagship location in Toronto’s Liberty Village – 3-51 Hanna Avenue. Look for the line at all Canadian locations and online at EQ3.com December 1, 2014.
