Statement from the Art Gallery of Ontario

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 26, 2012) - Late this morning, five students on a visit to the Art Gallery of Ontario's Frida & Diego exhibition fell ill, and emergency medical services were called. As the safety of visitors and staff is the AGO's top priority, the exhibition space was immediately cleared and environmental conditions were fully assessed. Testing confirmed that the Gallery's air quality is excellent throughout the building, and shortly thereafter the exhibition was re-opened. The Toronto Police has issued a statement confirming that conditions inside the AGO are not the cause of the medical incident. They are continuing their investigation and focusing on potential causes outside of the AGO.

For more information on the status of the students and the investigation, please contact the Toronto Police Service.
