One of the greatest parties of the year is coming up on Saturday, September 29, 2012 from 9:00pm until 2:00am at the Pierce Arrow complex - 1685 Elmwood Avenue. Artists & Models introduces this year's 'Showoffs' theme in a building that offers an absolutely incredible and spectacular space, with plenty of room to see, be seen and interact with the various art installations.
Whether you go as an artist or a model, or are merely interested in seeing artists and models, the event is a staple when it comes to fun and fashion, interactive art and over the top visuals. It's a chance to be part of the show - the crowd at Artists and Models can be just as interesting as the show itself... it's up to you whether you want to show up in character (I highly suggest it).
This is the perfect night to let loose and dance, and mix and mingle with more than thirty artists and performers. Widely known as "Buffalo's longest-running and most outrageously fun arts party", there is no excuse to miss the glitz and glam in the completely awesome Pierce Arrow showroom, a giant vaulted room where Rick James used to fire his gun after band practice - you can still see the bullet holes in one of the doors! Here are the details:
