Experience the magic of The Illustrated Café, presented by Advancial.

Walk into a cartoon-like world created by artist Aileen Bennett, a life-sized immersive drawing of a cafe. Viewers interact with a unique visual art experience which will evolve and change throughout its three-month duration.

This exhibition invites you to enter and open your imagination. Reaching across generations and backgrounds, this project aims to appeal to the “social media generation” as much as those who already love art.

AcA hopes to engage visitors who would never think of walking into an art gallery, and those who just want to experience something different, fun, and uplifting.

This exhibition is made possible by our presenting sponsor:
