Art Gallery of Ontario's Art as Therapy Exhibition ReviewThe cold winter season is really starting to drag on and is giving me a case of the winter blues. I'm finding it hard to get enough energy to do anything besides going to work, and I only do that because of the stack of bills that need to get paid. I decided that I was in desperate need of some art therapy.
Last week I took Friday off from work and spent the entire afternoon at the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO), wandering around their many amazing exhibits including the Art as Therapy exhibition.

Art as Therapy is based upon Alain de Botton and of John Armstrong's bestselling book of the same name. In their book, "the authors pose questions that lie at the heart of art museums and their future well-being: How can art address issues that engage us all? How can art help us to understand ourselves and to lead richer lives?"
