The Works Summer Solstice Gala is an unforgettable evening of entertainment and fine fare that will launch the 32nd annual The Works Art & Design Festival and Edmonton’s summer season!
The Festival has seen over 7.8 million visitors to over 1,500 exhibits and 900 festival sites, featuring 33,000 artworks. The Gala also celebrates the successes of The Places: Art & Design in Public Places. Since its inception in 1999, The Places has produced over 69 Public Art & Design Projects throughout downtown and other neighbourhoods – raising over 8.2 million dollars in cash and in-kind contributions.
Your presence supports Council Scholarships and Art Internships at The Works, awarded to advance the development of Edmonton’s talented visual art and design students. With 242 Internships and Scholarships to date, these students in turn become key members of the cultural workforce, enriching our communities.
