"Arts Umbrella is thrilled to host the 35th annual Splash, where guests will discover awe-inspiring artworks by some of the most celebrated artists in Vancouver and the province," says Paul Larocque, President & CEO of Arts Umbrella. "Support of Splash will empower young people to pursue their passions with life-changing arts programming."
 
Arts Umbrella reaches more than 20,000 children and youth every year; more than 14,000 through free community programming, ensuring that all children, regardless of their socio-economic circumstances, benefit from artistic endeavours. Splash 2017 will once again bring together over 600 corporate and community leaders, patrons, and art aficionados for this magical art auction and gala.
 
This year, Arts Umbrella is excited to feature artists Douglas Coupland, Jeff Wall, Ian Wallace, Andrew Dadson, Bobbie Burgers and Andy Dixon, as well as other celebrated contemporary artists. 
 
The spectacular event will take place at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, with CBC news personalities Gloria Macarenko and Fred Lee hosting the evening, and live performances by the Arts Umbrella Dance Company and Musical Theatre Troupes. Leading the coveted live auction will be Canadian multimedia contemporary artist, curator, and cultural leader, Hank Bull.
 
In celebration of the 35th anniversary, Arts Umbrella will also host an after party following the Live Auction, where guests will dance the night away to the musical stylings of DJ Chloe. 
 
The evening is made possible through the generous support of presenting sponsor TD Bank Group. Arts Umbrella is also pleased to be partnering with luxury jewellery brand David Yurman this year, who will provide a stunning signature raffle piece.
