In Time for the Holidays, Art Gallery of Ontario Opens Family-Friendly Exhibitions for Holidays


TORONTO.- Just in time for the holidays, the AGO has opened a group of intimate exhibitions that feature the work of two remarkable storytellers – Aesop and Walter Trier. Animal Tales: Beasts, Toys, and Fables from the AGO Collection opened December 24 and comprises four installations: Walter Trier: The Animals’ Conference; Aesop and Other Fables; Savage and Sublime: Animal Prints from the 1700s; and Walter Trier’s Toyland. The installations feature brightly coloured illustrations that celebrate the timeless appeal of picture books and the magic of visual storytelling. “Because of our unprecedented offers of free admission to visitors 25 and under and the special family package for Maharaja: The Splendour of India’s Royal Courts, we wanted to ensure that families had a number of exciting reasons to spend a day of their holidays at the AGO,” says Matthew Teitelbaum, the AGO’s Michael and
