Eventbrite - 40th Anniversary Inc. Squared Ruby Jubilee

Event is over for 2015. Stay tuned for news on next years Inc Squared!

Hamilton Artists Inc. is 40! 2015 marks Hamilton Artists Inc.’s ruby anniversary and that’s not all, this June also marks the launch of phase one of our long anticipated ArcelorMittal Dofasco Courtyard. Celebrate these landmarks with us while also raising funds for phase two of our community courtyard project at the Inc. Squared Ruby Jubilee on Saturday, June 27! 

In celebration of our ruby anniversary, we’ll be hosting a pretty spectacular bash (if we don’t say so ourselves). All are welcome! The evening will feature a live DJ, signature cocktails, special giveaways and of course art!

This anniversary party continues our annual Inc. Squared fundraising event where you can purchase amazing artwork graciously donated by our talented membership for only $100 each. New this year, we will also host a carefully curated silent auction featuring the work of exceptional emerging and established Canadian artists. Stay tuned as we’ll be posting previews of these and the Inc. Squared works leading up to the event. 

Join us in celebrating our 40-year history, while helping us to continue to fundraise towards a bright and sustainable future. Turning 40 is no small feat and we’d like to think that since our inception we’ve continued to be a pivotal centre for contemporary visual art in Hamilton and beyond. By attending and supporting us through this event, you will be helping us to continue to present challenging contemporary exhibitions, stimulate critical dialogue, and foster local artist initiatives for years to come. 

Tickets will be available online and at Hamilton Artists Inc. during operating hours beginning the first week of June. 

$10 - Students and underemployed
$20 - General Admission
$40 - Ruby Ticket. Limited to 40, includes an exclusive Inc. multiple created specifically for this event.
