Arts Umbrella celebrates the 30th anniversary of Splash
Arts Umbrella's signature fundraising event and charitable art auction Splash
returns for its 30th year on Saturday, October 13
. To mark this milestone, they're switching venues for the first time in three decades, leaving their traditional Granville Island venue and bringing their gallery and gala to CBC Vancouver
at 700 Hamilton Street in Vancouver.
This year's theme "Defining Silence" is inspired by the glamour of the silent film era. Join CBC News Vancouver
co-host Gloria Macarenko
as she hosts an evening full of inspirational performances from Arts Umbrella students, live music, and culinary delights. Mingle with hundreds of Vancouver's business and community leaders, arts patrons, collectors and arts enthusiasts, bid on any of exceptional art pieces by leading local and international artists, and stay for dancing at the after-party.
Proceeds from the fundraiser will help the students of Arts Umbrella, a not-for-profit arts education centre for children and youth. For tickets or more information, visit Arts Umbrella
