In Your Face – Portraits on Flickr.com

March 9th, 2006

Get creative!

The AGO has started a community group on the Flickr.com photoblog website dedicated to the expression "Art Matters". You can join this group and start sharing your original, digital art portraits. To get involved, make your way to http://www.flickr.com/groups/artmatters, sign up for a Flickr account and then join the In Your Face – Portraits group.

Also, for the first time in the history of the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Gallery is launching an exhibition created entirely by the public. The exhibition, called In Your Face, opens July 1, 2006. One of the AGO’s initiatives as part of Toronto’s Live with Culture celebration this year, In Your Face will allow everyone to become a creative part of the Gallery’s future.
