"The Lapwarmers" -Rachel Bone
This spring's Creative Alliance Marquee Ball (ie: THE arts event of the year, in Baltimore) is April 18. The art benefit auction, fancy dinner, and themed dance party are not to be missed, and help keep one of the city's best art resources in business all year. I've donated the above painting "Lapwarmers" for one lucky cat-lovin auction bidder to take home this year, and it's joined by dozens of other pieces by invited local artists.
You can choose the fanciness of your ticket anywhere from $30 (members headed to the dance party only) up to $185 (VIP dinner party with celebrity guests, plus the auction & dance party, prizes... who knows. Let's face it - I can't afford this ticket, so I will never know what happens to the Marquee high rollers. It may be scandalous). This year's theme is the apocalyptic film series Mad Max. Join your favorite arts survivors for an unforgettable evening of great food, drinks and dancing inside civilization's last apathy-free zone, the Patterson! Expect great dance music, performances in the main gallery, a curated silent art auction, and amazing vacation and restaurant deals.
In a world of rust, dust and indifference, join our insurgency to fight for the right to be CREATIVE, no matter what the future brings!
