Last year I was volunteered by a teacher of mine to work as a caricature artist in our last art gallery/jazz festival event at school. The problem was that only about 20 people showed up, 13 or which were staff. So needless to say I didn't quite ahve much work to do (i.e. none what-so-ever). So I spoke to my teacher and demanded that I be in charge of organizing next year's art gallery/jazz festival event. So I have been doodling some layout ideas and such and have hit a bit of a block. I wanted to make this event really spectacular, being that it is the only classy event we have in our school. I wanted to make it a real black tie and LBD event. So any ideas?
Here's what I was thinking of so far:
-creating large white walls for flat art dispaly purposes (no idea how to yet)
-draping black fabric to cover the cafeteria walls
-having an art auction right outside the event (along with an overhead projector for optimal viewing)
-creating a standing eating area with raised tables for drinks and treats.
-selling books with photographs of all of the art pieces along with artist's comments.
And that's really all I have so far. Help
