Art Gallery of Ontario Regains Support of Benefactors

The falling-out between the Art Gallery of Ontario and its longtime benefactors Joey and Toby Tanenbaum has ended, as the gallery announced Wednesday that Joey Tanenbaum will immediately rejoin its board of trustees, CBC News reports. In March, the couple—who have donated tens of millions of dollars in art and cash to the AGO over the past thirty years—withdrew their support because they opposed the gallery's upcoming $194-million redesign by Canadian architect Frank Gehry. But now that the design has been revised, Joey Tanenbaum said in a statement, “We are very pleased with the overall design and especially with the proposal for the sculpture atrium.”
