Invitation, Festival of Art and Food, 1979. Winnipeg Art Gallery.
The second annual Festival of Art and Food is held. This year, the three-day event attracts over 9,000 people.
The Gallery’s April newsletter reports that the event will feature “art and gift items for sale, an ethnic food sale, free entertainment with music and dances from many countries, the Refreshment Garden in the Sculpture Court, a plant and book sale, and a Children’s Activity Centre.” Additionally, “a limited edition of prints” by Manitoba artists such as Don Proch, Sheila Butler, and Kelly Clark (1935–1995) are offered for sale. The event raises $10,000 for the Gallery’s acquisition fund.
