Artists & Models: Stimulus

The Yard is back, and this time it’s playing for keeps. Unleash stimulus: 2010’s Artists and Models event scheduled to take place Saturday May 1st. This longstanding Buffalo event has captured more than the imaginations of revelers in the past… it has inspired countless others to promote the arts in large doses, sometimes pushing the envelope and always opening doors for artists seeking untapped insta-venues.

If ever there was a way to bring the masses to the doors of The Yard, then Artists and Models is the ticket. Seeing that this is such a large undertaking, it is only befitting that the event be held inside the cavernous building. In the past, The Yard has hosted primarily smaller concert series, which were held outside on the covered stage. In order to accommodate the thirty art installations, it was decided to put the Rock Harbor interior to good use. Don’t miss the ‘multimedia art & music megaparty’ that always finds the most unusual locations to call home. Heck, in this economy we could all use a little stimulus…
