Want to feel more artfully inclined? If you’re looking for an evening of extraordinary art and delicious dining, you won’t want to miss ARTBASH, a special event presented by Art Alliance Austin. Next Saturday at The Belmont (305 W 6th Street), the exclusive dinner will include curated courses and drinks, an exclusive preview of the exhibition, a private solo performance by musician Dana Falconberry, and an opportunity to meet select artists and curators. If you already have dinner plans, you can opt to show up for the after party, where you can dance to live music DJs while enjoying the art and mingling with Austin’s cool creative community.
Modeled after NYC’s CREATIVETIME Fall Ball series, the event will bring together Austin’s diverse art community and patrons, bringing art to life through interactions and experiences unlike anything Austin has seen before. Each room of the venue will be transformed by site-specific installations, performance, music, food, and audience activities. The Belmont will be transformed with the help of Austin lighting company KETRA whose dynamic system has been used on art masterpieces as well as everyday solutions for homes. Additionally, we’ll have ethereal live music performed by Henna Chou. The evening will be capped with a dance party led by a team of SXSW DJs.
The event will take place this Saturday, November 7 at The Belmont, located at 305 W 6th St., Austin. The main event will be from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. Tickets are $85 per person, which includes four drink tickets. For $250, guests can also attend an exclusive dinner from 6 to 9 p.m., which will include a curated dinner and drinks, valet parking, plus a general admission ticket for the remainder of the event.
