Ring in spring with Art Gallery glamour

Annual Urbanite event March 20 offers customized beverages and music in an artful environment

The Art Gallery of Greater Victoria is inviting one and all to ring in spring on March 20 with Urbanite, consistently one of the most chic and popular events in the city.

Landing on the first day of spring, this first Urbanite event of the new year and new decade will invite guests to look into the future and celebrate the possibilities. Custom cocktails, exhibition interventions, live music, hands-on activities and more will transform the art gallery experience, offering a new way to interact with the space and displayed works through a night of art, movement and connection.
