We have an exciting giveaway today for our local readers!
If you live in the Seattle area, have you been to the Bellevue Arts Museum? It doesn’t get as much attention as SAM, but its terrific for so many reasons. Firstly, its housed in a building designed by one of my favorite architects, Steven Holl (not my favorite of his, but a good one nonetheless). Secondly, because part of their focus is on Design and Crafts, their exhibits tend to focus on handmade as well as just fine art so you get to really see the process.
The great folks at BAM are hosting a party next Friday (8/17) called BAMignite: Funk Out! which is an evening fusing BAM’s latest exhibitions with style, music, performance art and interactive experiences. They are offering a pair of tickets to a local ready to come check the party out.
In their words: “Get funktified on BAM’s brand-new rooftop sculpture garden while you enjoy funk, soul, hip-hop & world music by KEXP DJs Darek Mazzone and Chilly. We’ll have live performances by: Marmalade, Seattle’s legendary funk & soul collective; Gansango, contemporary African dance & percussion; spoken word performances by Marita Isabel & okanomode and so much more!”
Additionally, I’m planning to be there, so you get to hang out with ME!
Since this one is a quick turnaround, we’ll keep it simple – to enter simply leave a comment on this post. The giveaway will be open until midnight PST 8/14. Good luck and hope to see you there!!!
