Like a mirror, art reflects the beauty of the world around us, reveals who we truly are, and can contain a lot of naked people. Reframe your perspective with this Groupon: for $35, you get admission for one to Splash!, presented by the Southern Arizona Arts & Cultural Alliance, at 6 p.m. on Saturday, June 2, at La Encantada (a $70 value).
Kaleidoscopic curtains of color envelop the fashion, cuisine, drinks, and live art at Splash!, a vibrant charity event with proceeds going toward bolstering arts-education programs in area schools. The idyllic La Encantada courtyard hosts the four-hour soiree, which begins at 6 p.m. with dinner samplings from more than 10 local restaurants. As homegrown painters create abstract art onsite, attendees can sip on libations courtesy of an expert mixologist, who can conjure cocktails in every color of your favorite rainbow suspenders. Local celebrities strut down the runway at 7:30 p.m., offering a sneak peek at La Encantada's clothing lines for the summer and fall, as well as hand-painted dresses and suits fashioned by local artists. After the final skirt swirls its way offstage, live musicians brazenly underscore a silent auction of the event's impromptu artwork with a set of shush-resistant tunes.
