Art City is a not-for-profit community arts centre founded in 1998 by internationally renowned, Canadian contemporary artist Wanda Koop. Located in Winnipeg’s West Broadway neighbourhood, the centre provides high quality arts programming free of charge to local residents of all ages.
This past weekend, Art City hosted nearly 1000 people at their Sixteen Candles Fundraising Party and Art Auction at the Marlborough Hotel in Winnipeg. Guests dressed in fancy 1950s attire and enjoyed live music by Canada’s The Reverend Dr. Ottawa Fantastic (Greg MacPherson) and his Fantastics, and a dance party with music by DJ Hunnicutt and DJ Co-op.
Passionate about supporting the local art scene, EQ3 supports various art events, projects and fundraisers throughout the year (most notably, Generation Art). EQ3 was excited to be title sponsor of Art City’s annual party, and Marketing Photographer Charles Venzon volunteered his time to work the EQ3 Photo Booth featuring the Replay Sofa, Custom Oak Coffee Table and Marimekko Unikko Toss Cushions. Here are some of his faves from the event!
