"Experience cultures from around the globe through art, dance and tasty refreshments! Arts After Dark is a night of creative exploration for adults 21+ that includes a make-and-take art project followed by dance. A cash bar offering adult beverages and complimentary hors d'oeuvres from Empire Eats Catering will be available throughout the event. It'll be a multicultural night to remember!
CREATE AN EXPLOSION ART PASSPORT – Arts Together's Art Director Renée Boyette will guide us in making explosion art passports during the first half of our night together. Using fun stamps, textiles and high quality, textured papers in bright colors, metallics or prints (representing different areas around the globe), you'll create your own special collage to transform into a pop-up-style book. Your explosion art passport can be displayed as a unique, 3D wall hanging or sculptural coffee table showcase. Who doesn't love versatile art? All participants will take their explosion art passport home with them at the end of the night. [See a sample explosion art passport on artstogether.org/arts-after-dark]
EXPLORE WORLD DANCE – Dance is a portal to a culture and its people. For the second half of the night, we'll travel to Latin America, Asia and Africa to explore four world dance traditions – Merengue, the Caribbean Quadrille, Indian Bhangra and a Ghanaian circle dance. Dance instructor Diandra Jones will lead us as we wine our waists, move and groove, and shimmy and shake to rhythms from around the world. Suitable for all levels – no dance experience needed.
