On Thursday, June 21, we will gather to celebrate the awarding of two major prizes in the Edmonton arts community: The Eldon + Anne Foote Edmonton Visual Arts Prize, and the Robert Kroetsch City of Edmonton Book Prize. These two prizes, while different in focus and genre, celebrate the artistic work that makes our city vibrant and interesting and beautiful. Please join us to honour the shortlisted visual artists and authors whose work is worthy of celebration! Drinks and snacks will be served.
