“Artists shouldn’t receive any money from the government – especially if what they produce is offensive”.

“If museums are serious about being places for culture to thrive and grow, then they shouldn’t charge for admission”.

“When I look at modern art, I can’t help but think that my kids could produce something just as good”.

“Where is Calgary’s art scene?!”

Do you have something to say about the arts? Get off of your soapbox and onto ours!

That’s right! For one night only, the Central Library will be turned into an artist free-for-all! Join Kris Demeanor, David Swann, Will Ferguson and many others for an evening of music, art, and inspiration.

Join us on September 18th, to meet and mingle, rant and rave! We supply the soapbox, you supply your views. Go ahead – get “lathered up” about the arts, and let your voice be heard!

Make your way to the Glenbow museum on the evening of May 15th for the opening of some very interesting new exhibits. How else will you get the chance to hang out with local musician Kris Demeanor, see gorgeous works by both impressionists and modernists, and drink on site?!

The jazz inspired event is pay-what-you-can, so take advantage!

For more information, visit the Glenbow Museum’s website.

If you’re interested in art and music, then be sure to check out our collection, too! Borrow 99 items at a time! That’s a whole lot of inspiration!
