This AGOinsider story was written by Samatha Chater, AGO Communications Officer, about her experience taking Art for Extreme Beginners: Sculpture. Trying new things can be scary. I’ve always found creative endeavours scarier than say, doing my taxes. Working at the AGO, I’m lucky to see beautiful art every day in the galleries. But this also […]

A special Valentine

It’s a wonderful feeling to receive a handmade card on Valentine’s Day. Imagine how it feels to get one from someone from a different part of the world.

To the moon and back

Mon, 29 Jan 2018 21:55:10 +0000

Tomorrow is a celestial triplet – a blue moon, supermoon and a lunar eclipse. With the moon on our minds, it’s the perfect time to feature some of our beautiful photographs of the moon. Our fascination with the moon and galaxies did not begin with a man walking on the moon. For thousands of years, […]
