Redford’s The Way of the Rain opens the Gala and launches the 47th annual Park City Arts Festival in Utah on August 4th
PARK CITY, Utah, May 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — The Kimball Art Center invites guests to attend their annual fundraiser gala featuring Sibylle Szaggars Redford’s live, multidisciplinary performance piece, The Way of the Rain and the exhibition of her show Summer Rainfall – Original Rain Art in the center’s Main Gallery.
The annual Kimball Art Center Gala precedes and honors the 47th Annual Park City Kimball Arts Festival (running August 12th–14th). The Gala will be held at 6pm on August 4th, encompassing a seated dinner and cocktail party within an outdoor, tented venue at the center. Guests will experience a live performance of The Way of The Rain, Redford’s homage to planet Earth and its four universal elements. The original piece will incorporate music, dance, spoken word, film, and light, featuring renowned musicians Will Calhoun, Dave Eggar, Chuck Palmer, Andrew Nemr, and guest artist Robert Redford.
„The opportunity for Park City to experience both the multimedia performance of The Way of the Rain, and the exhibition of Summer Rainfall – Original Rain Art, is a true and timely gift to our community,” says Robin Marrouche, Executive Director of the Kimball Art Center. „Redford’s work with rain as an artistic collaborator is haunting and ethereal.” The Way of Rain, an Official Selection of the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, will kick off an incredible evening.

Redford is a German-born multimedia artist, dedicating her work to creating art informed by her spiritual consciousness of our connection to life, land, and the world. Redford finds inspiration in nature and ancient traditions. Summer Rainfall – Original Rain Art explores the energy of the torrential monsoon rain storms that crash into the high desert of New Mexico. In creating her pieces, Redford exposed pigments to rainfall, producing organic works of art that capture the power of the storms that shape the landscape of the west.
All proceeds from the Gala benefit the Kimball Art Center in Park City, Utah. A limited number of tickets are available and can be purchased for $350 at: http://www.kimballartcenter.org/2016-gala/
