Family Day Weekend 2020

Friday, February 14 - Monday February 17, 2020 10:30 am - 4 pm

It’s all about celebrating families through the theme of Togetherness. We have lots planned gallery-wide! Toronto-based Ness Lee, a recent AGO Artist in Residence, takes over Walker Court for large interactive moments of play as part of our four-day Family Day weekend program. Also, enjoy a family-friendly tour with spoken word artists; plant a seed; build Inventions of Goodness; visit Hito Steyerl: This is the future, see other amazing art in the galleries; or take a much-needed break in our quiet space with soft toys and soothing music.
