Art represents the triumph over chaos, just as pulled-pork donuts represent the triumph over dignity. Expand your tastes with today's Groupon: for $10, you get admission to Platform Art's "We're Not in Canvas Anymore" party on Saturday, April 9 (up to a $20 value). The event starts at 7:30 p.m. at the SunTrust Building in Lakeland Plaza.
Platform Art, a nonprofit arts organization, champions emerging artists in the fields of visual arts, film, fashion, music, and performance. In the spirit of a Parisian salon, Platform throws casual art parties that exhibit work in a festive, non-gallery atmosphere. Party #17, "We're Not in Canvas Anymore," will regale audiences with an audiovisual smorgasbord of paintings, sculptures, live music, fashion, and velvet-Elvis portraiture. The evening will culminate in honoring the creative collaboration between local children and artist/educator Paula Allen with the unveiling of their mural created for Platform Art. Following its Platform Art debut, the piece will travel to Imabari, Japan, as part of a cultural exchange, then on to Club Med for a much-needed vacation.
