Modern Art 2012 at the Modern Hotel
May 3rd from 5-10p.m.
For the last 4 years Modern Art at the Modern Hotel has happened on the First Thursday in May. Back in 2008, Michal Lloyd, the Manager of the Modern Hotel, thought it would be fun to turn over the Hotel to some artists for the night. So she asked a few friends and Modern family to choose a room and do something creative with it. Since that low key event was overwhelmingly poplar, with over 1,000 people nights have included a Modern Fishing installation by Sean Aucutt and Bob Neal, Poet Adrian Klien madly banging out poems on demand on his typewriter from various perches and Josie Fretwell and Rachel Reichart’s Fur Donut Shop in the kitchen, complete with tough talking counter gals.
You were right, Michal, it IS fun!
