See art from around the world, attend workshops, lectures and special events.
Located on Dundas Street, the Art Gallery of Ontario features varying art exhibits. The building itself is a work of art. In 2008, the AGO had a major $254 million redesign and expansion under the guidance of renowned architect Frank Gehry, who gave it a graceful glass and Douglas fir remake. The Henry Moore Sculptural Centre boasts the world's largest collection of Moore's sculptures, and there are many great works by Canadian and international artists in the gallery's extensive collection.
Visitors can opt to do their own walk-through of the gallery or enjoy an hour-long tour to gain more insight. AGO also offers "Pop Up On the Dot Talks," which are 10-minute chats giving interesting tidbits of information. "Pop ups" happen every half hour on Wednesday and Friday evenings. The gallery also hosts special events, such as AGO First Thursdays where you can mix and mingle after hours. Guests must be at least 19 years of age. Or dine at Frank Restaurant which offers delicious seasonally inspired menus.
