Founded in 1900, the Art Gallery of Ontario is one of North America’s leading art museums. The international landmark and Canada’s leading cultural destination boasts redesigned interiors and exteriors by world-renowned architect Frank Gehry. The opening of two new attractions, the Thomson Collection of Ship Models and Thomson Collection of European Art, presented unique display and casework challenges that pushed the limits of possibility in a museum environment.
Creating the Perfect Display
The Thomson Collection of European Art features over 900 Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque artworks; the crown jewel of which is Peter Paul Rubens’ ‘The Massacre of the Innocents.’ The Ship Models Collection, which features one of the largest collections of ship models ever assembled, required the creation of six stunning stand-alone curved glass showcases. The international partnership of kubik and ClickNetherfield allowed both of these collections to be housed in exhibits that were perfect for display, protection, and a spectacular visitor experience.
