Redesigned and enhanced by Frank Gehry, the renovated Art Gallery of Ontario impresses Ninja and Special K. They wander around the old and new exhibits, compellingly arranged. Special K enjoys the new architectural improvements. Ninja finds herself intrigued by the Cree artist Kent Monkman’s eerie landscape painting The Rape of Daniel Boone Junior, the welcoming interactive piece called Urban Disco Trailer #3, and the international art award winner, The Index, by sculptor David Altmejd.
