EVENT: 36th Annual Arts Umbrella Splash Art Auction and Gala (October 13, 2018)

A magical night awaits guests of Splash, Arts Umbrella’s highly anticipated art auction and gala at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. The annual fundraising event brings together art-lovers for a show-stopping evening featuring live performances, delicious food, and, at its core, a comprehensive art auction, the proceeds from which support youth arts programming across Metro Vancouver.

This year, Splash celebrates its 36th anniversary on October 13, 2018, with nearly 100 auction items donated by an impressive array of prominent B.C. artists including Douglas Coupland, Marie Khouri, Jeff Wall, Etienne Zack, Allan Switzer, Ross Penhall, Angela Grossmann, Evan Lee, and Graham Gillmore, among other high-profile creatives.

While browsing and bidding, attendees – which include more than 550 business and community leaders, patrons, collectors, and enthusiasts – will be treated to live performances by the Arts Umbrella Dance Company and Pre-Professional Theatre Troupes, as well as an exclusive showing of a student-created Claymation video. Afterward, guests are invited to hit the dance floor and groove all night long to the musical stylings of DJ Chloe.
