Today the Art Gallery of Ontario held a media preview event for the upcoming Frank Gehry Art + Architecture exhibit. It was the first time the AGO has invited bloggers to attend a media preview, and I have to say I was impressed. I felt I was treated the same as any other member of the major press and they seemed happy to have the bloggers present. The exhibit features models and sketches of a number of Gehry’s recent buildings, including the current Transformation AGO project he designed. Thanks to Eli Singer for the invitation. The other photobloggers present (that I recognized) were Rannie Turingan and Sam Javanrouh. Unfortunately, Tanja-Tiziana Burdi of BlogTO sadly couldn’t make it.

Frank Gehry at AGO

Yesterday Toronto bloggers were invited on the AGO (Art Gallery of Ontario) for the media preview of Frank Gehry: Art + Architecture. This was a great experience as we were among the people from media to cover the event before the official opening (and to be able to take photographs in a no-photograph exhibition) Thank you AGO for inviting us and special thanks to Eli for making it happen.

I’m a huge fan of Frank Gehry and was thrilled to experience this exhibition and to be able to photograph some great models of his most famous creations. I will post more photos in the upcoming days. in the meantime you can check the flickr pool for more photos by other bloggers and also on my flickr set.
