Opening Night


A benefit for the Art Gallery of Ontario

The official opening of Art Toronto is a unique and important benefit gala for the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO). Last year, we welcomed more than 2300 guests and raised over $500,000 in support of AGO exhibitions, programming and artwork acquisitions.

Art Toronto Opening Night offers guests exclusive access to view and purchase works at the fair before it opens to the public. Alongside leading dealers and artists, guests toast the launch of the fair with delectable drinks, gourmet hors d'oeuvres and an artist project commissioned specifically for the evening.
