*Kelowna, BC (Oct 15, 2021)* - Rebellious Unicorns Production Company Inc.
(RUPC), parent company to Unicorns.LIVE, and the Kelowna Art Gallery
introduce the kick off to ART - A Rebellious Tour.

ART: A Rebellious Tour <https://unicorns.link/ART> - Join us for a visit to
the Kelowna Art Gallery with flair and fabulousness! Galleries can
sometimes be perceived as being stuffy or serious, but trust us, they can
be a LOT of fun. Join us for ART as hosts *Ella Lamoureux* and *Tory Braun*
show you another side of the Gallery. Visit the exhibits virtually and
learn what to expect (and what not to do) on your next visit. Plus, get a
peek at places and spaces you would normally never see. There will be no
shortage of shenanigans when you pair these two beauties up.

In the first episode, which is available at no charge, Ella and Tory will
chat gallery etiquette, expectations, and immerse themselves in *A Year
from Now*, which features paintings, sculptures, photographs, and more, all
drawn from the Gallery’s permanent collection. Tune in to see Ella’s and
Tory’s reactions as they explore it live – *Monday, October 18, at 7 pm*.

“We’re delighted to offer audiences yet another way to access the art on
view in our spaces,” says *Nataley Nagy*, Executive Director at the Kelowna
Art Gallery. “I’m as excited as viewers at home will be to see what this
duo gets up to.”

“Over the last 18 months we have streamed over 300 live shows totaling over
450 hours. It ranges from podcast style, to live music, to dance. Most
recently we streamed the Fight For Community 5 boxing fundraiser which saw
over 1200 tune in virtually.” explains *Dustyn Baulkham*, Executive
Producer at Unicorns.LIVE. “We are thrilled to welcome the Kelowna Art
Gallery into the Unicorn family with this new series that uncovers a
different side to the Art Gallery.”

While the first episode is free, registration <https://unicorns.link/ART>
is required and can be done in advance to ensure you get a reminder of the
show. Registration is available via the Unicorns.LIVE
<https://unicorns.link/ART> website.

*About the Kelowna Art Gallery*

The Kelowna Art Gallery engages, inspires, and enriches the community it
serves through the exhibition, collection, and interpretation of visual
art. Work by Canadian artists, both historical and contemporary, are
presented in five distinct exhibition spaces. The Kelowna Art Gallery is
invested in the idea that art helps to bring people together; and that life
is just better with art in it. Programs for people of all ages complement
the exhibitions and help to instill confidence in one's creativity and
foster meaningful dialogue on matters important to Canadians.

*About Rebellious Unicorns *Rebellious Unicorns is a Kelowna-based events,
broadcasting and media production company, dedicated to leading positive
change in the Okanagan and curating inclusive events, experiences, and
programming that bring people together. Led by Executive Producer, Dustyn
Baulkham, Rebellious Unicorns produces Unicorns.LIVE, QUSIC, Peak Pride,
FruitCake, the MX., Dirty Mutter & Cub Crawl, and Earth to Table Vegan
Market. Rebellious Unicorns respectfully acknowledge that they operate on
the unceded, traditional territory of the syilx (Okanagan) people.

*About Unicorns.LIVE *Unicorns.LIVE, the home of 100% live streamed content
focused on arts and entertainment. Real life doesn’t have an ‘edit
function’ or ‘photo filters’; real life happens, moment by moment...in real
time. Created by Rebellious Unicorns Production Company, Unicorns.LIVE
offers a platform for various types of entertainment by a diverse
collection of creators. Unicorns.LIVE is committed to supporting our
participating artists and creators; we run primarily on a subscriber format
as well as a pay-per-view setup (on occasions), with a percentage of each
payment earmarked for the artist. This ensures our artistic contributors
are compensated for their work, without relying on ‘likes’ to quantify a
payout. Content is protected on Unicorns.LIVE through securing the videos
and requiring that the audience log in to view content. Unicorns.LIVE is a
safe space, with tons of room for creativity and expression but absolutely
no room for hate. We hope you’ll enjoy our inclusive lineup of
entertainment options, along with our approach to experiencing life and
each live stream as it unfolds.
