With Toronto in Phase 2, we know that a lot of you are probably looking to get back into seeing some amazing art. Luckily for you all, the AGO is returning with some exciting new exhibitions including a show of Andy Warhol’s work. Best of all? You could be able to check it out as soon as this month.
For now, the gallery is planning to open on July 21st but is awaiting confirmation from both provincial and local jurisdictions. We’re definitely keeping our fingers crossed for a July opening as the new Andy Warhol show will display more than 250 works including some of his most iconic pieces.

But Andy Warhol isn’t the only show to check out. You’ll also be able to see works by Inuk artist Shuvinai Ashoona as well as Canadian painter Ben Woolfitt, plus some medieval religious relics. As you might have guessed, things will be a little bit different when you return to AGO. The main difference being that visitors must now book tickets in advance and come within a 15-minute time slot. Doable right?
It’s also looking like the ROM will reopen later this month on July 22nd but that will depend on the province entering Step 3. As details are still limited we’re unsure what their new ticketing process will be but it’s safe to assume it’ll be similar to the AGO. When the ROM reopens you’ll be able to see some exhibits on whales, textiles, and also the pandemic.
