hey all! i thought i would forward on this message from as220 regarding volunteering for their annual fool's ball. i've volunteered before doing decorations and it's really pretty awesome and fun to do if you have the time!
AS220 is still looking for artists to help with decorations for the 2004
Fools Ball--our annual fundraiser and the Party of the Year. Our theme this
year is the Harlem Renaissance, so we are looking for Harlem/20s-themed
creations. We especially need people to work on some of the following
Posters and signs: We are transforming the stairwell into a New York
subway station, complete with 20s and 30s-style movie posters,
advertisements, and signs for performances. There are a lot of
great resources on the web for finding examples of the aesthetic
of that area, and if you are interested in making posters I can
send you more information.
Beads: We would like to make beaded lampshades for the cafe and other
spaces; if you enjoy beadwork, this would be a great way to get
involved. We'll provide the beads, you provide the creativity.
Bar: There will be an additional bar in the Perishable Theater classroom
space that we can construct; as long as it's functional, anything
I am also open to more suggestions; if the Harlem Renaissance theme
inspires you, get in touch with me and tell me your idea.
AS220 will provide the necessary materials.
Of course, everyone who volunteers will receive a ticket to the 9:00 House
