The Glenbow Museum knows how to put on one bumpin party! This past Saturday, October 24, Calgary’s beloved museum threw a launch party to kick off its new exhibits and this was one party even the great Gatsby himself would have been envious of.
The evening featured the opening of Paul Hardy’s Kaleiodoscopic Animalia, and David Thauberger: Road Trips & Other Diversions. DJ Rob Faust provided a soundtrack of hot, sexy tunes all night long as some of Calgary’s most fabulous art fans mingled over cocktails and checked out the new works.
Also on hand was local designer Kat Mark’s LETHR Bar, where custom etched leather bracelets were available. Obviously I bought one!
My friend and I had a blast checking out the contemporary art, sipping wine, mingling with other party goers, and dancing to the beats. The Glenbow Museum exhibition launch party was one sexy, stylish party!

Kaleidoscopic Animalia: An exhibition designed and curated by Paul Hardy
Glenbow is pleased to announce acclaimed fashion designer Paul Hardy as the museum's 2015 Artist-in-Residence. Inspired by Glenbow's vast collection, Hardy`s curatorial debut is an exhibition examining how animal imagery and symbolism have influenced human creativity across time and cultures.

David Thauberger: Road Trips and Other Diversions
In David Thauberger's vision, the vernacular architecture of the prairies bursts with pop art iridescence. Familiar buildings like legion halls, grain elevators, diners and small town bungalows are flattened into postcard-like pictures that glow with neon colours and hyper-real skies.
