WAG’s Art Eats Sold Out
A new hot-ticket at the Winnipeg Art Gallery, Art Eats, is the latest in a line of sold-out Gallery events and programs. In the past few months, the WAG’s summer art camps, Gallery Ball and now Art Eats, are leaving the public wanting more, and for good reason. Creativity, in all its forms, converges at the WAG.
Introduced earlier this month, Art Eats features dinner at Storm Bistro followed by an exhibition tour. Fusing art and cuisine, Storm Bistro’s new executive chef prepared menus complimenting one of the Gallery’s featured exhibitions (in this case either Precise: Craft Refined or William Kurelek: The Messenger), and at just $35 per person, the program was an immediate hit. When the first two dates were sold-out, a third was added, but filled-up quickly.
“Given the essential relationship between food, the creation of culture and art, Art Eats was a no-brainer,” says Anna Wiebe, Head of Education. “We are thrilled by the enormous level of interest and enthusiastic exchange of ideas the program is generating. For those who missed out, we are pleased to confirm that Art Eats will return in 2012. Visit wag.ca for new dates including a special edition themed for Valentine’s Day, as well as dates for the upcoming exhibition, American Chronicles: The Art of Norman Rockwell (March 1 – May 20, 2012). ”
Approaching its centenary in 2012, the Winnipeg Art Gallery is Canada’s oldest civic art gallery and Manitoba’s leading visual arts institution. With a collection of over 24,000 objects spanning many centuries and cultures—including the world’s largest collection of contemporary Inuit art—the WAG is constantly moving between the historical and the contemporary in an effort to engage a growing public with the power of art in our lives.
