The AGO has donated its collection of some 110,000 slides to the Ontario College of Art & Design (OCAD).

"We are delighted to have the opportunity to share this unique resource with the broader community," said Kelly McKinley, the AGO’s Richard & Elizabeth Currie director, Education and Public Programming. "This exchange is another example of the many ways we are creating new and sustainable connections between the two institutions that comprise this unique art campus."


The slide collection includes AGO resource slides, index card catalogue, and the furniture that houses them. Slides that document the AGO Artists and Their Works program as well as a collection of lantern slides will remain in the AGO’s Research Library and Archives.
