Re:Form School

From the bombed school bus out front by TrustoCorp (pictured) to the playground murals and installations by street art stars and impressive group exhibitions inside, the Re:Form School exhibition in the disused school at 233 Mott Street (between Prince and Spring and open until 6pm tonight) is an absolute must-see. But, in case you can’t, here’s a handy photo tour of some of the education-themed event-exhibition.
