Splash Art Auction

For more than 40 years, Splash Art Auction, presented by Nicola Wealth, has established itself as one of Canada’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 evening entertainment, elegant food and cocktails, Arts Umbrella student performances, and culminates with the spectacular Live Auction.

Together with Co-Chairs Christie Garofalo and Bruce Munro Wright, O.B.C., we are thrilled to be hosting Splash on Saturday, October 5, 2024, at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver.
