TAG: A Benefit Party

If you like art and music, you won’t want to miss this event.

Have you ever wanted to be part of the creation of a sculpture? Participants at this event will be able to join in a collaborative art project designed by sculptor Guy Tedesco. Attendees will help by creating metal bricks that answer the question: What does home mean to you? Tedesco will use these bricks to construct a giant house sculpture.

Maybe paint’s more your thing. Local artists Casey McKinney and Jacob Duncan of OSRS are bringing back the TAG boards. Attendees should grab a can of spray paint or paint markers to add to the boards. These boards already have paint—each year another layer is added.

If dancing’s what you love, Louisville Silent Disco will be in attendance spinning tunes, including an exclusive TAG playlist. If you’re a gamer, you can try your hand at Giant Jenga or a special cornhole set painted by Jacob Duncan. There will also be a silent auction in case you want to take some art home.

Food will be available for purchase by Yafa Cafe and drinks will be poured by Stopline Bar, with a percentage of sales from both going to benefit Mattingly Edge, the benefited organization which helps people with disabilities flourish at work, at home, and in relationships. 

The TAG Benefit is for those 21 and over. The doors open at 7:00 at The Tim Faulkner Gallery. The event ends at midnight. Tickets are $20.
