Fall is always a busy time for Arts Umbrella, with our Splash fundraiser, community arts awards, charity runs, and art exhibits. Here are some of the fall goings-on from Arts Umbrella and the arts community.

The stunning, art-filled Simons store opened

  • Fifteen Arts Umbrella students are among the likes of Douglas Coupland and Bobbie Burgers – artists who have work exhibited at the impressive new Simons store in Park Royal. Free Lee wrote about the store opening.

Congratulations to these award-winning artists

  • The City of Vancouver announced the winners of its annual Mayor’s Arts Awards. We were thrilled to see many friends and colleagues on the list, including artist Sam Knopp, instructor and choreographer Lesley Telford, and Kidd Pivot-founder Crystal Pite. The Georgia Strait also introduces the very deserving award recipients.
