Splash Art Auction & Gala

Over 38 years, Splash has established itself as one of Vancouver’s highest profile fundraising art auctions. Every year, Splash is proud to feature close to 100 renowned artists from across Canada and beyond, who donate original artwork to support youth access to arts education. Splash features student performances, elegant food and cocktails, and the highlight of the evening, the Live and Silent Auctions.

In 2020, Splash introduced a new hybrid event format combining both small private gala gatherings as well as at-home viewing experiences. Splash 2021 will continue with both in-person and at-home experiences and we are excited to continue to showcase Splash artists to audiences across Canada and beyond.

Funds raised at Splash ensure that the life-changing benefits of an arts education can continue to be offered free-of-charge to vulnerable children and youth.
