"I love Art on the Line. There is so much talent in the valley, and so many great students studying fine art at UBC Okanagan. Art on the Line is the best place to see work by all of our local artists. It's a fun night to support students. AND, you walk away with a great piece of work for your walls." ~ Michael V. Smith

Funds raised from this event are distributed amongst the Visual Arts Course Union to financially aid with events such as the 4th year graduate exhibition, visiting artists, and art focused student trips.
