Last year the Artist Collective revived the old tradition of the annual Beaux Art Ball. It's an end of the year celebration thrown by the art department that celebrates graduating BFA, BA and MFA students. It's also traditionally a costume event, and as this year's ball will be taking place on April 9 we've dubbed it the "Fools Ball," and it's taking place downtown at the Zootown Brew. In store will be art, music, perhaps some performance and games...and well, whatever you want, if you come help us plan it!
If you have Facebook, search for the Fools Ball event to get on the invite list, and to invite your friends pronto! Help us spread the word! Designs for the posters are underway and will be done by Louis Habeck, so if you have any suggestions please see him (he will often be found in the resource room in the Art Building). The Badlander will be catering our Ball, but only if we can prove we can get enough people! Bands and DJs for the function are yet to be determined. We are thinking of getting the Music Department involved and having one of the Jazz Bands play to start off the night. There are also some DJs in question. It is 4$ for tickets, and will be 5$ at the door. Tickets will be availble in approximately two weeks so keep your ears and eyes open!!
Thanks to those of you that have emailed me and offered your help, we will be contacting you soon!
Once again, the Beaux Art Ball is on Friday April 9. We will be hanging the artwork of any member, prospective member, and those that have helped us substantially at the Zootown Brew. So if you can't make it to the meetings, let us know if you want to be involved in other ways! Remember, We are also looking for people to replace the current officers. Most of us are graduating this spring, so now is a great time to get involved!
If you have any questions please email, call or text me (Nellie) 406-270-7253 or contact our president Katie 406-461-2830!
Hope to see you all Tuesday at our meetings!! 3:00 pm in the University Center, conference room 222 (Next to the UC Gallery).
