An incredible night at Contemporary Calgary’s LOOK2015, presented by Holt Renfrew, Calgary Herald, City of Calgary and Enbridge, the fundraising event that attracted more than 700 people from diverse industries to support Contemporary Calgary’s major project of transforming Centennial Planetarium into a modern space for contemporary art. The evening began with an inspiring presentation by Adam Gopnik, followed by music entertainment by Canadian music-duo HUMANS and live art showcase at various locations in the building by Tia Halliday. With the tremendous effort from passionate supporters at the silent and live auctions (hosted by Dan Levy) and the generosity from anonymous donors, Contemporary Calgary had reached its goal raising $1 million. The money will be used to develop a space called the ‘Temporary Calgary’ - a pop-up art gallery that is scheduled to open in the fall of 2016. A huge congratulation to Contemporary Calgary’s success at the 2nd LOOK event, and with this momentum, I can’t wait to experience the new Centennial Planetarium space and see what it has to offer to elevate Calgary’s contemporary art culture.
