Venue Overview

Powerful experiences take shape when art meets architecture.

Designed by world-renowned, Toronto-born architect Frank Gehry, the AGO is Gehry’s first building in Canada and marks the very place where he made the initial connection between art and architecture. Hallmarks of his AGO design, which include dramatic sculptural staircases, the warmth of Douglas fir and the extensive use of glass that infuses the galleries with natural light, connect the city and the Gallery in provocative ways.

With a permanent collection of more than 80,000 works of art, the AGO is among the most distinguished art museums in North America. From the outstanding works featured in the Thomson Collection to the comprehensive works offered in the Canadian, European and contemporary collections, there is something for everyone at the AGO. As you will discover, the AGO is an extraordinary home for extraordinary art and extraordinary entertaining.
