A SKYDIVE Fundraiser

at SKYDIVE Art Space, 2041 Norfolk (map)

Saturday, May 7th, 2011, 6–9pm

$20 Admission

The Future is Now will rock Houston on Saturday, May 7th from 6-9pm. Bringing 15-20 performance artists together in one space celebrating many versions of the future; this will be a night to remember at the home of Skydive at 2041 Norfolk. Projected on the front of the house will be a newly edited version of the original 1920's film Metropolis. As you stroll throughout the house, robots will serve you drinks and hor d'oeuvres, and join us in the "common room" for an amazing silent auction featuring work by emerging and established local and non-local artists.

Skydive is an artist-run space in Houston that hosts shows and events. Your participation will directly support artists visiting and making shows in Houston!
