Art Gallery of Ontario -- Grand Re-Opening!

I can't wait to visit the AGO When it re-opens!
Starting November 14, 2008 the AGO will reopen its doors to the public and unveil its transformed design, interactive galleries and inspirational art, beginning with three days of free admission:

Friday, November 14, 4 pm to 12 midnight
Saturday, November 15, 10 am to 12 midnight
Sunday, November 16, 10 am to 5:30 pm

I recently delivered a large shipment of new pieces to the AGO shop...from teacups to large wall pieces.
About the new shop: Designed by world-renowed architect Frank Gehry, the new AGO shop will be home to some of the most unique merchandise in Canada. Spanning some 7,000 square feet, the store’s floor-to-ceiling windows infuse natural light over an array of products.
Don't miss it!
