I love this space in the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) which was one of the major additions to the gallery during the Frank Gehry designed renovations completed in 2008. It was named the Galleria Italia as a tribute to the 26 Toronto families of Italian descent who contributed $13 million towards the construction. The space stretches almost 600 ft along the front of the building above Dundas St giving you a wonderful view of the street below and the of the Victorian buildings across the road. It is a warm lovely space now being used as the site of the gallery's espresso bar but it has also been used for sculpture exhibits in the past. This pic was taken at that magical time in the evening when the sky is like a jewel!
