Submerged In Art Charity Event
Weird Chief Pictures Presents
The 3rd annual Submerged in Art charity event is a gathering of Art & Music to benefit The Road Home homeless shelter. On February 24th and 25th at 6pm located above the Tap Room on 2275 S. Highland Drive, experience the intimate gathering which features over 15 artists exhibiting and selling their paintings, sculptures and prints alongside DJ’s, spoken word, live music performances and exciting silent auction items donated by over 30 LocalFirst Utah businesses.
The 2010 and 2011 events attracted considerable and enthusiastic crowds raising thousands of dollars for The Road Home. Event Founder Iosua Tai Taeoalii states, “It’s now our 3rd year and we’ve established that we know what we’re doing, we’ve proved you can have a great time at a charity event, and so I expect everyone to join us. We’ve even made it a two day event this year to be more accommodating to your schedule.”
With a charitable objective, Submerged in Art is an exposition of refreshing artistic disciplines comprised of strictly Utah artists including Iosua Tai Taeoalii, Adrienne Taeoalii, Daniel Overstreet, Darrell Driver, Mason Fetzer, Chris Madsen, Dusk One, Adrian Prazen, Brian Gerber, Jorge Arellano Molina, Lucky Seven, Jared Knight, Sonya Evans, Joshua L. Johnstonand many other local talents.
Intertwined with the audio troposphere of DJ Sayo(Friday), DJ Street Jesus(Saturday) and the hosting entertainment of Adam Sherlock and Johnny Riche, the evenings will harness live performances byThe Precinct, The Moth and the Flame, Brian Bingham, Bellrave, Matt Mateus, Chivers Timbers, Mad Max and internationally renowned poets Jesse Parent and Jean Howard along with other surprise performances.
Mission Statement: (Iosua Tai Taeoalii) All across the United States I’ve seen too much uninspiring, conventionally-created art and I’m bored by it. I want to showcase talent that is often overlooked, breaks free of the mold, exists outside of the box and embraces innovative ideas. What better environment to showcase that kind of work than a charity event that benefits the less fortunate. The 2012 Submerged in Art event will hopefully provide an eye-opening experience for the seasoned and the novice art collectors. With a generous portion of the artist’s sales and ALL proceeds from the prize-drawings, silent auctions and door donations benefitting the Road Home, I sincerely hope that Utahans will come out to support.
Friday, February 24th 6pm – 1am
