"We are proud to extend our support at this exciting time as the Gallery presents a remarkable collection of photography from around the world."

As one of the most distinguished art museums in North America , the transformed AGO will set the highest standards for accessibility to all facets of the artistic experience. It will provide unparalleled access to art display, programming, conservation, storage, creation and research. Visible walkways, extensive use of glass, and views of the city and Grange Park will connect the city to the Gallery.
