Hitch up your smarty pants or pull up your party pants this Saturday (not that either is really mutually exclusive): our two offerings this Saturday will probably appeal more to your Apollonian or bacchanalian sides. However, hitting both shows in the same night may appeal to your more rad side.
Blue Lucy‘s much loved Black Light Art Exhibit returns this Saturday at 7pm. Though perhaps not as heady as most of the exhibits I usually recommend, I promise: you will have fun. Far Out will be featuring work from several artists including local star Frank Strunk III and 600 Block neighbors, Pale Horse Design. Not only will the black light blow your mind (and reveal nasty stains), you’ll get a chance to meet some great local artists. Check out Taco Bus before hand (you’ll find me there) and Sake Bomb after – you’ve got yourself a grade A downtown St. Pete night. We’ve been in Tampa a lot lately, so it’ll be nice to pay a visit to Blue Lucy and the rest of the 600 Block.
Tempus Projects – Wall Music and Things Not Seen Before Closing Reception 2/04/12 7pm
I know lately I’ve given the lion’s share of my attention to Tempus Projects’ John Cage tribute exhibit. So this is the last time I’ll mention Things Not Seen Before. It’s just that I’ve been a fan of the composer/artist since I was a wee high school art nerd.
The USF School of Music will be interpreting and performing music based on the sights and sounds of the Things Not Seen Before exhibit. The small space is sure to work well for this performance also. It’s been encouraging to see so much collaboration involved in this ongoing exhibit, so it’s appropriate USF gets in on the act before John Cage leaves town. This Saturday is also your last chance to get in on the act so if you’re not heading to the 600 Block hope you can make it to Seminole Heights.
