Canadian Art Gallery Changes Name for Family Day

Family Day is a Canadian holiday celebrated on the third Monday of February and it honors children and families with lots of family friendly activities and festivals. In the city of Toronto, the Art Gallery of Ontario will be officially renamed for the day on this Family Day, February 20th.

The name will be changed to the “Kids Gallery of Ontario” and the cultural institution will host a number of artistic activities for kids and parents.

Signs, including the big red AGO near the entrance, will be “creatively reworked” for the day to say KGO.)

Children will have a chance to paint, sculpt and work on installation art with AGO Gallery School instructors, take part in flash mobs, or just dance. There will also be visits from doppelgangers for artists such as Andy Warhol, or Pablo Picasso. Sounds like a lot of fun!
