Art Gallery of Ontario's Art Spiegelman's CO-MIX: A Retrospective ReviewDuring a day off two weeks ago, I spent the afternoon at the AGO, letting myself get a good dose of some Art Therapy. I reacquainted myself with some favourite pieces of art and was introduced to some new and exciting ones, which included a visit to the Art Spiegelman exhibit.
