ABOUT: LATE NITE ART it is an evening of collaborative art-making, ambient music, to-die-for food and insightful discussion. In a few words, it's a social art experience. LATE NITE ART is a facilitated workshop that encourages you to work in free form. You can expect to meet interesting people, swirl around some tasty alcoholic beverages in your mouth, and treat your taste buds to some delicious eats. LATE NITE ART is an open platform for all non-artists and artists alike to come together. You don't need to be able to color within the lines or draw portraits of fruit bowls you just need eyes, ears, and an open mind.
With this month's theme "outsiders," we will explore the outsider art revolution, take a look at who remains on the outside of mainstream culture, and share our ideas about what we want to let "inside" our own lives...
