Join us for the best art party in town, this time with an awesome 80s/Weird Science vibe. Celebrate the opening of our latest exhibitions, Transformations - A.Y. Jackson and Otto Dix and, of course, Made in Calgary: The 1980s.
Partnering with Beakerhead's Beakernight, you'll see mechanical wonders on Stephen Avenue Mall in front of the Museum. Inside, local band The Mannequin Depressives will rock the house and Calgary-based noise musician Smoth will manipulate sounds, lights and even people with various forms of electricity before manning the DJ decks for a set of crucial 80s sounds. And don't forget to wear your raddest 80s outfit so you can strike a pose in our portrait studio. Plus: more musical guests and other surprises to be announced.
Be there or be, like, totally square.
Three times a year, Glenbow keeps the doors open after dark and turns the music up for the best art party in town. Launch Parties make the art on display come to life in new ways and give you a different museum experience than you would get during normal daytime hours. Launch parties are open to everyone and are pay-what-you-can admission.
Glenbow's Launch Parties began in 2009 and have since become one of Calgary's favourite see-and-be-seen events. The party is a great way to celebrate the opening of feature exhibitions, but it's also a curated event where we invite local musicians and performers from Calgary's creative community to entertain the crowd.
Stay tuned for information about the upcoming Fall Launch Party.
