We’re thrilled to announce the success of Salon: An Evening with Artscape, an event in support of the Artscape Foundation and in celebration of Artscape’s 25th Anniversary. Presented by BMO Financial Group and Norton Rose, the evening was attended by 150 guests (tickets sold out over a week before the event!) and featured food by some of the city’s top restaurants and speakers from Toronto’s art world. Guests loved the atmosphere created by the Event Services team in the Covered Street Barn at Artscape Wychwood Barns.

Check out the photos below to see how we arranged the Covered Street Barn to accommodate a cocktail reception, a seated dinner for 150, and a stage for speeches and a live-auction!

Meanwhile, on the east side, tables were set up and ready for dinner. Look at that gorgeous early evening sunlight!

The 7,500 square foot Covered Street Barn was partitioned into two distinct spaces by white floor-to-ceiling sheer curtains. The curtains were kept closed during the cocktail reception, but were parted just slightly during dinner to reveal a small stage and podium for speeches.

Just before sunset, we turned on the built-in architectural lighting for a dramatic atmosphere.

As you can see, with some great floorplanning and room decor, a large space like the Covered Street Barn can make even an event for 150 seem cosy and intimate!
