Kiyooka Ohe Arts Centre 2019 Gala
119 12 Ave SW, Calgary, AB T2R 0G8, Canada
The Kiyooka Ohe Arts Centre + Sculpture Park (KOAC) will host its third Gala on September 20, 2019, at the Hotel Arts. The Gala is critical to continue the development of KOAC as a cultural destination focused on celebrating Alberta's and Canada's contemporary art and heritage.
Our vision is to create one of the largest sculpture parks in Western Canada and to provide a platform of support for established and emerging artists within a contemplative 20-acre natural forest setting. This past year, we received and restored Roy Leadbeater's "Steel Wave," which sat for 40 years at the front of the former CBC Radio building on Memorial Drive.
Huge thanks to our artists, sponsors and guests who will be helping Harry and Katie, the KOAC Team and future KOAC residency artists to pull this dream together.
We hope to see you Friday, September 20th to enjoy an evening in the heart of Calgary surrounded by Canadian art and live entertainment.
Emcee'd by senior ensemble performer at LMTC, Renée Amber. 2019 Honorary Chair, Dr. Daniel Doz President and + CEO of the Alberta University of the Arts. 2019 Honorary Guest Speakers, renowned Calgary artist, Ron Moppett and independent curator and writer, Katherine Ylitalo. Don't miss this!
