An annual costume party inspired by two Salvador Dali exhibits will transform the Winnipeg Art Gallery tonight.
Art & Soul: The Lucid Dream is the gallery’s premiere event and fundraiser, taking the WAG’s four floors and turning them into a series of dreamscapes.
Held over until February 22, Dali Up Close and Masterworks from the Beaverbrook Art Gallery will be the focal points of the evening.
“Dali is the perfect muse for an Art & Soul party, which is all about connecting with the community,” said WAG director and CEO Dr. Stephen Borys. “The event attracts over 800 people to the WAG every year, and for many young guests, it’s often their first gallery experience, allowing us to share all the WAG has to offer.”
Art & Soul: The Lucid Dream will run from 8 p.m. until 2 a.m. and include entertainment by Attica Riots, DJ Hunnicutt, and DJ Co-op.
“The Lucid Dream is going to be the biggest, most awe-inspiring party of the winter and we can’t wait to share with our guests all of its fantastic surprises,” said Tim Horn, marketing co-chair the event. “Every level of the WAG will be filled with incredible experiences, from local musicians and DJs to extraordinary décor.”
A limited number of tickets remained at the WAG’s front desk early Saturday, but have since sold out.
