Can’t Walk ‘Em? Then Count ‘Em: Guess the number of stairs.

November 20th, 2008

By: Shawn Micallef

The iconic staircase on the north side of AGO tower that wiggles its way up from the Walker Court up to the fifth contemporary gallery floor (officially named the “Allan Slaight & Emmanuelle Gussuso Staircase”) is just about open to public use. Until then, the AGO is inviting the public to guess how many steps there are. It’s a challenge, as the stairs are hidden behind all that polished wood and metal. The five closest guesses win the contestant a prize from ShopAGO. Email your guess to howmanysteps@ago.net. No entries accepted after the staircase opens!
