The Direct Arts World's Fair
On May 17th, Direct Arts invites you to imagine an alternate utopian universe - one where tax dollars go towards arts and education, rather than war and imprisonment...one where artists making intimate, articulate, relevant theater and film can not only survive but thrive... one where minority artists and their stories are considered both viable and necessary to the mainstream. Direct Arts celebrates this vision at The Direct Arts World's Fair, a retro-futuristic event to benefit their intercultural theater and film programs in 2011-2012.
Come take a ride on Al Gori's Homespun Merry-Go-Round, a homemade carousel decorated with dancing sock monkeys!
Dance to eclectic international pop played by DJ Jaiko Suzuki!
Bid at our ever-popular Silent Auction!
Snack on fairground food at international pavilions designed by local artists!
Marvel at The Direct Arts Aquacade starring Jenny Rocha and her Painted Ladies!
PLUS meet the Philanthrobot, whose edifying antics dispel the mystery of donating to the arts!
Recommended dress: silver, white, retro-futuristic, steam punk, random ethnic garb.
Tickets at the door will be $40, so buy your tickets now for the special advanced price of $35!
Can't come? Aww, we'll miss you! But you can still support our vision by giving a tax-deductible donation to Direct Arts!
Direct Arts is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. Contributions for the purposes of Direct Arts must be made payable to Fractured Atlas and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
