Who says there can only be one grand opening? Not us! We’re hosting our 2nd Annual Grand Opening Party Thursday, June 12, from 7 pm to 10 pm. Canopy, home to Son of a Sailor, debuted many of its studios and creative spaces last year, and, with the addition of new studios/retail spaces, we’re taking this opportunity to make a grand reintroduction.
Drinks will be provided by Deep Eddy Vodka, light fare catered by James Beard-nominated La Condesa, and cold treats by GoodPop. There will be a silent auction benefiting LifeWorks, an Austin-based advocacy group for youth and families on the path to self-sufficiency. Guests will be able to tour the studios and newly added retail spaces. A photo booth will be available by Annie Ray and DJ Khary Alexander from Dub Academy will be spinning tunes throughout the night.
Studios sponsoring the event include Son of a Sailor, Big Medium, Pollen Floral Art, Modern Rocks Gallery, Invenio, You’re Welcome Studios, No. 4 St. James, Keith Kreeger Studios, and Matt Garcia Design. We’re proud to expand Canopy’s presence as one of Austin’s most exciting creative spaces, and we hope you’ll join us for an evening celebrating this new chapter. RSVP here!
Important Note: We’re still accepting donations for our silent auction benefiting LifeWorks. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re an individual maker or business interesting in donating.
