Kamloops Arts Council & Kristina Benson Art launch new line of wearable art for KAC’s 50th Partial proceeds go to support community arts

Kamloops, BC — Celebrating a golden anniversary is a major milestone. The Kamloops Arts Council was founded in 1968 and for its 50th, the organization has teamed up with local artist and designer Kristina Benson on a new line of branded wearable art.
Partial proceeds from the sale of each tank top, headband, pair of leggings or tote bag will be donated back to the Kamloops Arts Council to support its accessible community arts programs, including the Kamloops Children’s Arts Festival, the Art Exposed Regional Exhibition, the Crossing Bridges Outreach and many more.
     “Artists interpret the world on behalf of others,” says Kristina Benson. “Nurturing the gifts of artists creates a cycle that enriches us all. I feel blessed to support through this collaboration with the Kamloops Arts Council. They inspire me to inspire others.”
     “We’re incredibly honoured that Kristina has partnered with us on this project,” says Kathy Sinclair, KAC executive director. “The designs are not just for KAC fans — they’re eye-catching pieces in their own right that can be worn for years to come.”

Items may be viewed and ordered from the Kristina Benson Art website at

All items are made in Canada; expect 10-15 days for delivery (shipping prices are included). There are no returns or exchanges as this is a fundraiser.

Samples will be available for viewing at the Kamloops Arts Council office (7 Seymour Street West) and at the KAC booth at Art in the Park on Canada Day, July 1st in Riverside Park.
