More than 500 guests attend Splash, our signature event for the chance to bid on coveted works of art, generously donated by local artists such as Gordon Smith, Ross Penhall and Cori Creed.
As Splash moves into its 27th year, it is anticipated to be the hottest charitable art event in the city. Splash is an experience. It is a feast for the senses, including a cocktail reception, a fine wine and food experience, performances by Arts Umbrella students, a hot DJ revving the party up and of course, 100 engaging contemporary artworks. The entire event is held in one truly unique venue, the dramatically transformed Performance Works on Granville Island.
