FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
February 5, 2019
Arts Whistler’s wildly popular Anonymous Art Show returns to the Maury Young Arts Centre for another year on April 5, 2019.
WHISTLER, BC – Arts Whistler is ramping up to host the Anonymous Arts Show for its second year at the Maury Young Arts Centre. This one-of-a-kind art fundraiser brings together artists from across a spectrum of styles and experience to create incredible pieces, all in an 8” x 8” format. The trick is – all of the art is anonymous. It’s the most fun you can have choosing and buying art!
All proceeds raised by Anonymous Art Show 2019 will support Arts Whistler’s community programming, providing year-round programs and workshops for children, youth and adults, taught by professional local artists and artisans. These programs help foster Whistler’s arts and culture scene by supporting the artists we love to love and providing opportunities for the community to explore their creative potential.
The Anonymous Art Show is more than just art choosing madness! The evening features music, catered appetizers, a pop-up bar in the theatre, some surprise guests and newly discovered artists, all for just $20.
Art can be selected for purchase through four buying tiers:
- TOP TEN (New in 2019!) – $250 | 6:30pm (10 spots only! Be one of the first people to choose)
- $150 | 6:45pm (up 50 spots available)
- $100 | 7:45pm (up to 50 spots available)
- $50 | 8:30pm (up to 100 spots available)
Plus, all are welcome to attend the free Sneak Peek Party on April 2 to mingle with the artists, enjoy live music, great snacks and a drink, and most of all, catch a first glimpse at the art before buying begins on April 5!
Arts Whistler is calling all artists to take part!
Whether an established artist or a creative hobbyist, all artists and photographers are invited to submit their work by March 1 for inclusion in the Anonymous Art Show.
