WAG Presents Art & Soul: Clash of the Titans on February 20, 2016

Winnipeg, Manitoba, December 4, 2015: The Winnipeg Art Gallery is excited to announce that tickets for this year’s Art & Soul fundraiser, Clash of the Titans, are now on sale. The annual costume party will take place on Saturday, February 20, 2016 from 8pm to 2am at the WAG.

Transforming the WAG building into a mythical journey from the depths of Hades to the heights of Mount Olympus, Art & Soul: Clash of the Titans is inspired by Olympus: The Greco-Roman Collections of Berlin, the incredible exhibition of Greek and Roman art currently on view at the WAG. 

“What better way to celebrate Art & Soul than with a costume party themed to Olympus!” comments Catherine Maksymiuk, WAG Manager of Media & Marketing.  “Art & Soul attracts over 800 people to the WAG every year, and for many young guests, it’s often their first gallery experience, introducing them to all the WAG has to offer. .”

Art & Soul: Clash of the Titans will feature live performances and interactive experiences on all four levels of the WAG. Dress as your favourite mythical figure and come rub shoulders with other deities and heroes while enjoying non-stop entertainment.

“Clash of the Titans is going to be the most exciting Art & Soul yet,” says Tim Horn, Co-Chair of Art & Soul: Clash of the Titans. “Our planning committee is hard at work recruiting the best local musicians and artists Winnipeg has to offer to make this an unforgettable night. Partygoers and art lovers alike won’t want to miss it.”
