The Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) completed a four year renovation project in 2008. I was still living in Toronto when the Franky Gehry-designed redevelopment plan was completed but I did not have the chance to visit the gallery until now. I definitely missed a lot since the AGO reopened its doors four years ago.

The AGO is located in the Grange Park neighbourhood, between the financial district and Chinatown in downtown Toronto. Gehry designed the most recent expansion and the renowned Canadian architect lived in the neighbourhood as a child. As one of the largest art galleries in North America, it holds the largest collection of Canadian art works which includes the Group of Seven, David Milne, the Native Canadian artist Norval Morrisseau, and Cornelius Krieghoff, as part of their permanent collection.
