|GO FOR A SPIN|
Artpace's official summer series DJ JJ Lopez will get you in the mood for our LOOK FRESH party this Friday night with volume 1 of his Jazz Funk for Dancers mixes, illuminating original vinyl--dance singles from the 1970s and '80s, when jazz, funk, and disco met at a most creative and imaginative musical crossroads. This mix was designed with the dancer in mind.
|WE'VE GOT AN|
APP FOR THAT
Thursday, June 7
Help us welcome our new International Artists-in-Residence: Leslie Hewitt (New York, New York), Jacco Olivier (Amsterdam, The Netherlands), and Mike Osborne (Austin, Texas). It's summertime in Texas, so we'll keep it light with an appetizer theme. We'll provide several savory (and sweet) bites, if you'll help by complementing the menu. Bring YOUR favorite appetizers, finger foods, or dessert to share on this casual evening of food, friends, and the future, as we talk to the new residents about their upcoming projects at Artpace. Artist presentations begin at 7pm.
