The Kids’ Gallery Pets and Me: Explore, Imagine, Create
In this second exhibition of paintings, sculptures and photographs in the Kids' Gallery, you’ll encounter children and pets from long-ago times and faraway places. You’ll see cats and dogs and even a rabbit.
Have fun! Check out the works of art. Draw a picture of a pet – real or imagined – take a photo, relax and linger. Pet-inspired costumes and props are available for visitors to dress in and pose for their own portraits. You can post your photographs or a picture of your pet on Instagram with the #AGOkidsgallery hashtag to see them appear on a screen in the space. The Kids' Gallery also includes books about pets, a touch quiz and a drawing station for budding artists inspired by the exhibited works.
Organized by the Art Gallery of Ontario.
This exhibition is included with general admission.
