Where The Wild Things Are

In the Studio | Mar. 4 – 30, 2014 | Grades JK-2.

Back by overwhelming demand!

A landmark in children’s literature, this interactive adaptation of the award-winning Maurice Sendak classic delighted sold-out audiences when last presented at YPT in 2005. The incorrigible Max, sent to bed without his supper, embarks on imaginary travels to a land of wild animals and extraordinary adventures – where he is ultimately crowned ruler. Young audiences are invited to sail along with Max to the land of the Wild Things.

The Kids’ Gallery — Just Like Me: Explore, Imagine, Create

On December 21, come visit the AGO for the opening of The Kids’ Gallery, a space created especially for children and you. Together you can experience art first-hand, learn and have fun.

In this first exhibition of paintings and sculptures, you’ll encounter children from faraway times and places. Some are outside and some are at home, spending time with their family, friends and pets. Has life really changed that much over the years?

Check out the works of art. Make a portrait. Explore the books. Relax and stay a while.

Exhibition-inspired costumes and props are available for visitors to design, dress up and pose for their own portraits. Families are encouraged to post their photographs on Instagram with the #AGOkidsgallery hashtag to see their portrait appear on a screen in the space. The Kids’ Gallery activity centre also includes art books and a drawing station for budding artists inspired by the exhibited works.

The Forbidden City

For over 500 years, the gates of the world’s largest imperial palace were closed to all but the emperor, his family and servants. This stunning new exhibition invites you to cross the threshold to see over 200 national treasures from Beijing’s Palace Museum – some travelling outside China for the first time.

Compelling characters, engaging stories, and family adventure frame these extraordinary objects as you journey from the gates of the outer court, through the inner court and into the emperor’s private spaces, revealing the everyday lives of all those who paid a price to live inside.
