About AGO - Art Gallery of Ontario

We're one of the largest museums in North America bringing people and art together. Our Mission: We bring art and people together and boldly declare that Art Matters. The Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) (French: Musée des beaux-arts de l'Ontario) is an art museum in Toronto's Downtown Grange Park district, on Dundas Street West between McCaul Street and Beverley Street. Our collection includes more than 80,000 works spanning the 1st century to the present-day. The gallery has 45,000 square metres (480,000 sq ft) of physical space, making it one of the largest galleries in North America. Significant collections include the largest collection of Canadian art, an expansive body of works from the Renaissance and the Baroque eras, European art, African and Oceanic art, and a modern and contemporary collection. The photography collection is a large part of the collection, as well as an extensive drawing and prints collection. The museum contains many significant sculptures, such as in the Henry Moore sculpture centre, and represents other forms of art like historic objects, miniatures, frames, books and medieval illuminations, film and video art, graphic art, installations, architecture, and ship models. During the AGO's history, it has hosted and organized some of the world's most renowned and significant exhibitions, and continues to do so, to this day. Over the last three decades, the gallery has seen four major expansions and renovations, typically considered a high amount and unseen by most galleries of the world, and continues to add spaces today. The gallery recently built the Weston Family Learning Centre, and is building a David Milne Research Centre, designed by Hariri Pontarini Architects. It's last major renovations have seen architects like John C. Parkin, Barton Myers, KPMB Architects, and most recently, Frank Gehry. --- All images reproduced on this Site are provided free of charge for research and/ or private study purposes only.
