On November 7, 2015 Contemporary Calgary will host hundreds of cultural revolutionaries in the Centennial Planetarium for its premiere fundraiser, LOOK2015, presented by Holt Renfrew, Enbridge, City of Calgary and the Calgary Herald. The goal: raise $1M – enough to set up a ‘Temporary Contemporary’ by the fall of 2016 and begin welcoming people to Calgary’s first significant destination for modern and contemporary art. Generous private donors have stepped up to match donations, dollar for dollar, up to $500,000. All donations will go twice as far!
Big, bold, and magnificant. We’re counting down the days.
To kickstart that fundrsaising effort, two things happened this week.
1. Pre-bidding began online for LOOK2015’s centrepiece event: the live & silent art auction – one of the biggest to take place nationwide. Take a LOOK.
2. LOOK2015 sponsor Holt Renfrew hosted a Private Shopping Night on October 7 and invited all their friends to come along for the party. Boom was thrilled to produce this event, which attracted hundreds of shoppers to shop the night away in style, and all for a great cause: 10% of all sales were donated to Contemporary Calgary’s $1M goal (and, of course, matched by CC’s donors).
Enjoy photos of the event below, and catch that action yourself at LOOK2015 on November 7. TICKETS & INFO.
