Weekly Photo Challenge: Scale at the Art Gallery of Ontario

At almost half a million square feet, the Frank Gehry-designed Art Gallery of Ontario is a wonderful place to spend a meandering afternoon taking in some culture.  One of my favourite spots is the the Italian Gallery (pictured) with its minimalist wood and glass design.  The sheer scale of it can overwhelm and inspire.

If you are visiting Toronto, be sure to stop by the AGO at Dundas & McCaul for a wide range of permanent exhibits and special collections, with Basquiat on from February 7th to May 10th, 2015.  The AGO costs about $20 for adults, but the permanent collection is free on Wednesdays from 6:00-8:30pm.  If you happen to be in town on the first Thursday of the month, be sure to check out the First Thursday’s for only $12.

  1. This is an awesome building … unusually creative for Toronto which tends to be overly conservative. There was so much criticism of this design when it was first built, but I think it’s brilliant!
