The Gallery began an extraordinary new chapter in 2008 when a stunning new design by world-renowned architect Frank Gehry opened its doors to the public amid international acclaim. Highlights include the Galeria Italia, a gleaming showcase made of wood and glass running the length of two football fields along the Gallery’s façade, and the iconic staircase, spiraling up through the roof of Walker Court and into the new Contemporary Galleries above. From the extensive Group of Seven collection to the brand new African Art Gallery; from David Altmejd's monumental installation The Index to Peter Paul Rubens' masterpiece The Massacre of The Innocents, a highlight of the internationally acclaimed Thomson Collection; there is truly something for everyone at the new AGO. Don't miss our exciting fall exhibtions including: King Tut: The Golden King and the Great Pharaohs starting November 24, 2009.
