ARTwear has reached its tenth year of executing a fun and creative way to raise money for The Art Gallery of Calgary’s art education programs. Fortunately, this event has surpassed its initial intent and in a small way become almost an ambassador for creative talent in Calgary. While raising money for art programs, this event, held at Hotel Arts, managed to expose our city’s dedicated art students and emerging artists from the Alberta College of Art and Design (ACAD) as well as local fashion designers and boutiques – it’s a win-win.
