Arty Party in Toronto: It’s the Arnold!

It’s that time of year again, and among all the exhibition openings, parties (I swung by the Canadian Art Foundation‘s annual fundraiser was last week) and festivals (Nuit Blanche is next week-eek! More on that coming soon…) Toronto’s art scene is back in full swing.

Relatively new on the scene is ArtsScene‘s annual Arnold Party.  It’s the afterparty for the Business for the Arts gala, and it’s happening October 6 at the fabulous 1920-style Carlu. Appropriately, this year’s theme is Boardwalk Empire and the party is full-force fancy dress, so get your game on, people!

(disclaimer: I sit on the board of ArtsScene, a Canada-wide young professionals arts group.)

The Arnold is fun because it’s not an art party, and not a business party. It’s where business meets the arts. It’s where you’ll meet people! And it’s in celebration of a young professional, chosen each year who gives extraordinary time and commitment in support of the arts. This year, it’s Simon Foster.

Expect swinging tunes by Tanika Charles & the Wonderfuls, jazz piano, burlesque, a casino to top off the food and drinks on offer. And plenty of glittery dresses.

Artists and ‘artworkers’ pay $80 (click on the link and use code ‘arts’.)
Regular price is $125. Click HERE to buy tickets!

See you there!
