Toronto: AGO: The Light




Galleria Italia, AGO, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. June 2016.


Some museums in Toronto offer free admission on certain days and times. The Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) is one of those museums, and Sandy and I took advantage one evening, early. We followed a guided tour that covered the museum highlights.


When we walked through the Galleria Italia, I gasped.

The best work of art in the entire museum, made all the better because your body and its shadow become part of the installation when you walk through it, sit in it, stand in it.

I had to know - who designed this magical ship of light and lines, the Galleria Italia?

I learned it was architect Frank Gehry.

Heheheheh, more on that gentleman later.
