A brief message from Executive Director, Mo Douglas
Hello Sea to Sky friends,

As we emerge from our COVID-19 required hibernations, the Arts Whistler team is working on producing live and in-person events for August and September. We’re sewing up required approvals, so watch our social channels for some very fun announcements soon. As mentioned last month, we’re also setting up a video production and streaming studio in the Maury Young Arts Centre theatre. While people-gathering limitations mean that you can’t come to us, we’re developing programs that can come to you, through online magic. In the meantime, stay healthy and keep creating!

Mo Douglas

Anonymous Art Show is coming back!
New format for 2020

September 11, 2020 | 7-11pm | 19+ | Ticketed | Online
Viewings at Maury Young Arts Centre starting Sept. 1, 2020

The Anonymous Show has been moved to September 11, 2020.
Arts Whistler is changing up the format to comply with current COVID-19 health regulations. There will be in-person viewings but the buying night will happen online this year.
Whether you’re in search of a piece from a highly sought-after artist or looking for the perfect painting to fill a void on your walls, the Anonymous Art Show is an exciting opportunity to buy impressive original art produced by the Sea to Sky creative community. Adding to the mystery, each participating artist’s identity ‒ whether established or an up-and-coming talent ‒ is kept secret until after purchase.

This is an annual fundraiser for Arts Whistler. This year’s funds will support our community arts programs and the purchase of new theatre equipment. Don’t miss it!

Whistler Children’s Festival – Online Edition 2020

To celebrate the date of what would usually be the annual Whistler Children’s Festival, Professor Science challenges Sea to Sky families to recreate the Make Your Own Ice-Cream experiment from the Whistler Children’s Festival – Online Edition.

Record your video and post it with #whistlerchildrensfestival for a chance to win Imagine Cinemas Village 8 Whistler movie vouchers for the whole family!

Upload your video to Facebook or Instagram before July 19. Winner will be randomly selected on July 20, with the winning entry shared on Arts Whistler’s Facebook page.

Get your science on!
