JUNE 20 TO SEPTEMBER 20 It’s never been easier to travel the length (and breadth) of the Western hemisphere—from Alaska to Newfoundland to the Gulf of Mexico, Brazil and far beyond—but how closely do we really look at where we’re going? Just in time for July’s Pan Am Games, the Art Gallery of Ontario presents “Picturing the Americas,” an exhibition of landscapes that capture not only scenic vistas, but also the history, politics, culture and traditions associated with places like Rio de Janeiro’s Guanabara Bay, California’s Sierra Nevada mountains, Canada’s far north and the Tierra del Fuego in southern Chile and Argentina. The display boasts approximately 80 exquisite works in all—more than enough to inspire some serious wanderlust. —Craig Moy
