Art’s 1,000,055th Birthday Party

January 17, 08:00pm - 11:45pm

8 PM – Midnight

$2 Admission


In 1963, French artist Robert Filliou proposed that 1,000,000 years ago, there was no art. Luckily for institutions like ours, Filliou pronounced that on the 17thof January, Art was founded on modest beginnings when someone dropped a dry sponge into a bucket of water. Now, somewhat jocularly, this annual celebration of Art’s Birthday is used as a way to recognize and applaud the presence of art in our lives!


In solidarity with the loose network of artists and friends around the world, the Southern Alberta Art Gallery invites you all to celebrate both Art’s Birthday and the 100thAnniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus. The Gallery will play host to a Bauhaus inspired costume party, with music, experimental sound instruments, and a birthday cake for Art.
