I’m very excited and honored to have been chosen as one of the guest-tweeters during the next SAM Remix on February 21. This is a super cool event: It’s essentially a club/mixer inside an art gallery, with live art and performances included. Here are some of the features I’m most looking forward to this round (check out the event page for a full list):
- Dancing to a surrealistic composition of genres with DJ OCnotes.
- Transform your 2-D creativity into a 3-D sculpture with artist Tariqa Waters.
- Experience the galleries in new and unexpected ways with My Favorite Things: Highly Opinionated Tours led by artists, community figures and special guests:
- Ali el-Gasseir, co-Artistic Director for Washington Ensemble Theater and local playwright
- Naomi Wachira, Seattle based singer/songwriter
- Rodrigo Valenzuela, video artist, photographer, and 2013 Stranger Genius Award for Art winner
- Ella Dorband, playwright, art collector, and dance enthusiast
- Joselynn Tokashiki Engstrom, Managing Director and Co-founder of Acrobatic Conundrum
I’ll be tweeting from the @iheartSAM Twitter handle at the opening of the event, from 8-8:50 p.m., and if you email me (paulbalcerak [at] gmail [dot] com), I can give you a discount code for $5 off an adult ticket.
I hope to see some of you guys out there. I’m seriously geeked out over being able to do this. Please do stop by and say hey to me if you’re there, or talk to me via @iheartSAM on Twitter the night of.
