For 10 days, the Whistler Conference Centre will house works of art from all facets of the art scene. There will, of course, be plenty of painting on display, but there will also be a number of live art exhibits, art classes, sculptures, and light shows.
There is no limit to what can and can't be on display at this year's show. Most of the works of art will be geared towards the street art and pop art genre, but there will also be plenty of traditional artists and scenic artists on display as well.
