For the first time, the Art Gallery of Ontario exhibited artwork on the outside of their building. This is a small part of a wrap around sign installation from this past summer by Barbara Kruger. The full sign reads:  LOVE IT-SHOVE IT-PRAISE IT-PLEASE IT-DOUBT IT-BLAME IT-KISS IT-BUY IT-BELIEVE IT  In the lower right is a bonus sign for FRANK Restaurant (named after architect designer Frank Gehry) The right half of the windows above the sign open onto a long gallery which connects the observer with the street.
