AGO Youth Council 2010: Alex & Sofia

July 12th, 2010

It is our pleasure to introduce the members of the AGO Youth Council 2010. Find out about Youth Council projects and activities and how to get involved.



A self-described mess, Alex attempts to experiment with as many different forms of art as possible, so far covering photography, pottery, acting, film, dance, fashion design and more. Her most recent projects have included filming a music video to a song by the Canadian indie band Said the Whale, and exploring the traditional First Nations art form of hoop dancing. Alex spends her summers canoe tripping and white water kayaking, and hopes to take up rock climbing. Currently a high school student, Alex dreams of one day owning her own tea shop. She is also currently in mourning for Alexander McQueen, visionary.

    These girls are very lucky to be recognized so young. The AGO should do more for All Artists and keep childrens art programs running and keep admission low for all the Art Lovers that can't afford to go to the New Art Gallery; and the wonderful Exhibitions like Drama & Desire now showing until Sept 26th. The AGO should be open to all walks of people, so they can enjoy Art in all it's glory without having to pay an arm and a leg for admission.

  2. Thank you for your feedback, and your enthusiasm for this series. Accessibility is important to the AGO, and we appreciate your comments.

    Every Wednesday night, from 6 – 8:30 pm, admission to the AGO’s collection galleries is free! This is a great opportunity for young art lovers and those on a budget to experience everything the gallery has to offer. More information on our accessibility initiatives, including Free-After-Three for Ontario high-school students, is available here:
