This Thursday – Must Love Marisol: DJs, Dancing, Fashion at the Brooks (Win Tickets!)

Posted by Holly Whitfield | August 19th 2014 2108 0

Have you been to the Brooks Museum to see the Marisol exhibit yet? If not, this Thursday August 21 is the perfect opportunity to see the amazing art and go to a party with music, art, dancing, and shopping. 

Tickets are just $10 each, but, hey, ten bucks is ten bucks so I'm giving away a pair of tickets. Read on to find out how to win.

This Thursday, experience the colorful, expressive pieces from influential artist Marisol while enjoying a ton of Memphis party staples. Go here to read more about Mariosl and the exhibit at the Brooks. From the Facebook event:

The party starts on the plaza with mobile retail trucks KPresha Haul of Fashion, Henny Penny, Thigh High Jeans, and Sache Clothing. Then go inside the museum and get creative with Amurica, Spillit, Adam the Poet, and Memphis Urban Sketchers. 

The Learn 2 Be dance squad will perform in the rotunda, and out on the terrace, Memphis Tango will hold Brooks Milongas with free lessons followed by a dance demonstration. We’re screening Andy Warhol’s 1963 film Kiss, which features Marisol, with a special soundscape created onsite by IMAKEMADBEATS, plus sets by DJ Moi, and DJ Capital A.

If you want tickets, just leave me a comment here saying which part of the party you're looking forward to the most. I'll do a random drawing tomorrow a little before 1 p.m.

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.

  6. Amelia says:

    I'm excited about the dancers!

  7. Whitney B. says:

    I’m super excited to see the works of Marisol. Recently, I’ve rediscovered how much I love visual arts and just being in a scene where everyone is expressing. It’s cathartic, artistic, meaningful and just EPIC!

    I'm looking forward to the dancing. Memphis has a lot of local talent with magnificent performers and musicians, but the dancing needs serious help. There are no places to go dancing.

  19. Keilon Morton says:

    Marisol, Warhol, free tango lessons and watching our art/art history Rhodes student daughter explain it all to her grandparents flying in this afternoon from Utah. The husband says his parents won't like it all, but they will LOVE our daughter's animation sharing Memphis with them. Can't wait!
