waiting at the AGO

i stood in line for a while last weekend to see the newly-opened interior of Frank Gerhy's Art Gallery of Ontario revamp. and while i didn't get in (the line was tooooooo long!), i was thrilled to see how many people turned out to visit the new art gallery. considering Gerhy grew up in a nearby neighbourhood, i thought it was especially appropriate that so many people brought their kids to see the new space.i can't think of a better use for a Henry Moore sculpture! this is Two Large Forms, installed in 1974, created 1966-1969.

update: for an amazing shot of the new AGO at sunset, see Scott Norsworthy's photo on this blogTO entry.
