Rob Ford–themed art show is billed as non-partisan (but features a portrait of Ford as a pig)

Rob Ford isn’t known for supporting the arts, but he sure gets his fair share of portraits (and operas!). Anyone who’s looking to score their own artistic rendering of the mayor—and doesn’t have an extra $5,555.55 laying around—can head to Leslieville store Atomic Toybot, where a show of Ford-themed works is on until April 23. The 30-piece exhibition is being billed as non-partisan (the store reportedly rejected some of the nastier submissions), so don’t expect a Ford hatefest disguised as an art show. For that, you’d have to check out some Ford-inspired graffiti.
