Recently students from grades 10-12, packed onto a bus to Downtown Toronto to visit the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO). The agenda for the day was expanding the student’s knowledge of what the AGO holds beyond its doors, and also exploring the surrounding area of Chinatown and Kensington market.
Students visited an exhibit called “Outsiders”, an ode to 1950s-1980s film photography, with a special focus on the culture of the time. There was also an entire floor dedicated to the work of Hurvin Anderson, a painter with a unique style who paints his memories exactly as he remembers them– including anything that would’ve obstructed his view such as blinds or a chain link fence.
With so much to see in the gallery, everyone was well-occupied.
