ART + ACCESS + LEARNING
The Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) is among the most distinguished museums in North America and is committed to making great art accessible to all. The AGO’s promise is to inspire current and future generations to see themselves in the art that we present and to create meaningful art experiences that provoke dialogue, offer new perspectives and stimulate creativity. The AGO brings transformative art experiences to life and believes in the power of art to start a dialogue, create community and change lives.
The AGO’s collection of close to 95,000 works ranges from cutting-edge contemporary art such as Untilled by Pierre Huyghe to European masterpieces such as Peter Paul Rubens’ The Massacre of The Innocents; from the vast collection by the Group of Seven to works by established and emerging Indigenous Canadian artists; with a photography collection that tracks the impact of the medium with deep holdings of works by artists such as Garry Winogrand and Diane Arbus; and with focused collections in Gothic boxwood miniatures and Western and Central African art.
The AGO has a robust membership program and annual attendance exceeding 1 million in 2017/18 to enjoy a dynamic suite of programs, including artist lectures, school visits and tours, Family Sundays, First Thursdays, special events and performances, camps and studio courses. Accessibility and inclusivity are at the heart of what we do – from Art in the Moment, offering specialized tours to those living with dementia, to Free After 3 Youth Programs and Free Wednesday Nights. The AGO is also one of the largest art museums in North America with an operating budget of over $60 million, over 600 employees, and 400 volunteers.
The AGO is in the midst of an ambitious, Gallery-wide reinstallation project, and is developing a bold new 10-year vision to ensure its position as a leader in the global conversation about contemporary issues. The first steps are underway to launch a major fundraising campaign to expand programming and space and ultimately ensure the AGO brand resonates globally.
