In Support of MacLaren Art Centre’s Highest Priority Needs

The impulse that saw the establishment of a public art gallery in Barrie was one of insight, inspiration, and a sense of community pride. Since 2001, the MacLaren Art Centre has been building community through art, becoming a creative and cultural cornerstone for the City of Barrie, Simcoe County, and the surrounding areas. As we build on these accomplishments and emerge from this period of change and reflection, we invite you to be part of our future. Join us as we continue to build a healthy and creative community and an economy of innovation through art.

Our commitment is to be inclusive and responsive working collaboratively as we chart our way forward. We will develop exhibitions, programs, and artistic projects in response to issues that matter to our immediate community within the broader context of the provincial and national visual art and cultural framework.

By sponsoring the 2023 A Night at the Races: A Black Tie Affair, you are making a positive impact on the quality of life and health and wellbeing in our community through art. In this way, contributing meaningfully to the economic development and creative future of our community.

In addition to being a lot of fun, this is a unique and dynamic networking opportunity for you and your business showing that your organization is positively impacting the community through your involvement.
