The health and safety of our employees, volunteers, visitors and our extended AGO community is always our top priority. It is for this reason, and on the direction of the Government of Ontario, that the AGO closed temporarily on Sunday, Nov. 22 at 5 p.m. We will continue to monitor the situation and look forward to welcoming visitors to the AGO again.
Now more than ever, art can help lift our spirits and support our wellbeing
Although the AGO is closed, we will still be engaging with our AGO community:
- Our online learning will continue! Check out our Virtual School Programs, children, youth and adult courses, and fun artful activities you can do from home.
- Our online talks will continue as planned.
- shopAGO’s physical store may be closed, but you can always shop online.
- The AGO Bistro will be closed January 1 to 14, 2021.
What lies ahead?
To help curb growing cases of COVID-19, on January 12, 2021 the Government of Ontario issued a stay-at-home order, and declared a second state of emergency. In compliance with these new measures, the AGO will be closed until further notice.
We will continue to be guided by the advice of local, provincial and national public health officials, consider all government recommendations and will make decisions as needed regarding any additional measures.
We will be contacting visitors who have booked tickets to arrange for refunds. For our AGO Members and Annual Pass Holders we will be accessing your renewal dates and will advise of any changes once the Gallery reopens.
As a non-profit arts organization, the AGO is grateful for our community’s continued support through these unprecedented times.
