For this event each artist will design and transform their assigned studio into a creative event space. The night of the event, guests will visit each studio as they dine on a series of tapas. In this event in the past, artists have used a variety of media including fabric, netting, projection and painting directly on the studio walls. 2014 Affiliate Artists will work with the program team and Special Events Manager to develop their theme and plan their studio. Artists will be granted a stipend of $250 to purchase materials. In addition, the Center will provide tables, linens, flowers, and other rentals in each studio as needed. This event also features an art sale of alumni artists. Affiliate Artists are encouraged to have work for sale in their studio the night of the event. Timeline will be announced later.
