Body of Art: A Live Model Installation Benefiting Nashville Cares
August 9, 2009
"Body of Art: A Live Model Installation" will be composed of approximately 10 live models painted by some of Nashville's most creative minds, a silent auction of donated local art and gift baskets, hula hooping, and live DJs from 8:00pm to 10:00pm. The live model installation will take place in Blackbird's Main floor gallery. Simultaneously, local artist Duncan McDaniel will showcase his installation artwork in Blackbird's downstairs gallery. McDaniel's show entitled "The Red Room" will feature a balloon installation designed by the artist, transforming the entire downstairs space with balloons. McDaniel's show will run until August 21, 2009. DJs and dancing will continue on the front porch after the art event until 11:00pm. The show will be a one night only event, with all proceeds benefiting Nashville Cares. Rumours Wine and Art Bar, located next to Blackbird, will open up on Sunday, in support of the event, by providing house drinks at $5 for the night.
