NAC10 Art Students Visit the AGO


Madonna's NAC10 Aboriginal themed art students went to the AGO May 23rd to explore Aboriginal artist pieces, the Canadian art collection, as well as the highly acclaimed Georgia O’Keeffe exhibition! Students were thrilled to experience the museum, and enjoyed exposure to Aboriginal art works. 


"The Canadian department at The AGO is actively expanding the scope of its collection to include historical First Nations art. Exemplary objects include an Anishnaabe Gunstock Club (anonymous, early 1800s), which in 2002 became the AGO’s first major acquisition of Ontario’s First Nations heritage, a selection of argillite poles by Haida master carver Charles Edenshaw (c.1839-1920), and the argillite and ivory Sea Captain (Haida, anonymous, circa 1840), acquired in 2008. Acquiring major works by contemporary First Nations artists is a critical focus as is ensuring that the collection and program reflect the historical diversity of Canadian society. " -
