Calgary get ready for the biggest RAW art showcase you’ve ever seen. GLIMPSE is scheduled for July 10th. Come visit the outdoor stage and Steam Whistle beer tent while enjoying performances and other artistic pieces.
This will be one of the BIGGEST art events to happen in the city this year, and top it all off, it’ll be held during the Calgary Stampede! Since it will have nothing to do with the Stampede, all sorts of locals will be coming out, and, as Standard (the venue) is in the heart of downtown, surrounded by hotels and right across the street from a c-train station only a few stops away from the Stampede grounds, this is going to be a tourist magnet when they’re not on the fairway!
Raw: natural born artists have also partnered with the Alberta Children’s Hospital, with a booth completely dedicated to the work of children staying in the hospital who participate in the Art Therapy Program. 100% of the proceeds from that booth, and percentages of the sold work from other participating RAW artists, will go directly into the hospitals Art Program.
GLIMPSE will be running from 11AM-11PM on Friday July 10th 2015.
There will be about 50-70 participating local artists (visual art, music, film, accessories, hair, makeup, fashion ETC) which means something for everyone!
