The Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) recently held a gala fundraiser that featured whimsical modern art installations. When it comes to fundraising events, it can be difficult for organizations to strike a balance between showcasing their work and ensuring that the guests are having fun. The AGO managed to highlight a number of influential artists by turning their work into the main attraction.

The AGO's gala fundraiser is an annual event and this year's party featured the works of Maya Fuhr, Brad Tinmouth, the Broadbent Sisters and Chloe Wise. The event made the art installations the main attraction with an open bar and live performances in the center of the gallery. The event also allowed guests to immerse themselves in the artwork by using it as a backdrop for their photos. One room was even covered entirely in angular florals, which made it the perfect photo-op stop for guests.

Unlike traditional gallery fundraisers, this event allowed guests to interact with the artwork in unique and creative ways.
