THE FUTURE IS NOW at Skydive Art Space

This Saturday May 7th, some of Houston's best performance artists will gather at the Skydive House (one of the coolest  art venues in town) to celebrate many versions of  "The Future." The event is a fundraiser for the venue, so by assisting you will not only enjoy great art but you'll be supporting  the Houston art scene.  In addition to performances there will be interactive installations and a silent auction. Many cool artists have donated art including   Ariane Roesch, Chuy Benitez and Man Bartlett, who recently did a fabulous social media based performance entitled #24hClerk at the venue. The show is curated by Nancy Douthey, one of the main facilitators of the highly acclaimed Performance Art Lab, which makes this event "A can't miss."
