This year, we’ll explore and experiment with different forms of nourishment: food and drink, good company and conversation, and of course, art—all of which provide deep and rich sustenance. To nourish is a positive action associated with thoughtfulness, reflection, strength, and support. It can mean caring for self and for others through small habitual examples of nourishment or bold gestures.
SMASH is the Gardiner Museum’s annual art party hosted by the Young Patron Circle. It’s a night when the next generation of arts enthusiasts and cultural philanthropists come together to celebrate the city’s vibrant arts community and see how young Canadian artists are pushing the boundaries of their media.
