FLUX – “An Art Sensory Overload.”

In the metaphorical sea of urban America, artists have been drifting away with the tide, as sterile office buildings and chain franchises sail in and the rents skyrocket. In the latest area to fall victim to such conformity, Arlington’s Clarendon neighborhood, the Art Outlet is partnering with Walnut Street Development, artdc.org, Arlington Independent Media (AIM) and DC Conspiracy to cast the large anchor with its “Flux: An Art Sensory Overload” from 5:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Saturday, January 27, at the Danville Body Shop, 1415 N. Danville Street in Arlington, VA 22201.

The DC Conspiracy will hold their event “Washington DC Counter Culture Festival” at Dr. Dremo's from 4:00 p.m. - 12:00 a.m. You can find more information on their web site at www.dcconspiracy.com.

At The Danville Body Shop, your eyes will feast on paintings, sculpture, and similar visual art fare. You’ll also be treated to four bands, an interactive video/sound performance piece, fire juggling, aerial dance performance, and improv theatre. And if pleasing attendees aurally, visually and esthetically isn’t enough, there will be an art raffle and an art salon open to everyone for the duration. Save the relaxation for the wine and cheese set; this artistic excursion will overload your senses with the unlimited possibilities of artistic endeavor.

Cities are often judged by tourism statistics and their economies, which are worthy of consideration. But from Rome to Paris, from London to New York, from Toronto to Los Angeles, from Tokyo to Beijing, from Bombay to Istanbul, behind every great city is a vibrant artistic scene -- be it architecture, popular music, museums, theatre, the symphony, or filmmaking. In a modern world where graph paper often trumps the canvas, Art Outlet seeks to give local artists a voice and enable visitors to witness first hand what artists can do for neighborhoods.

By including representatives from virtually all artistic media, “Flux: An Art Sensory Overload” proves that while urban areas may be in flux, the artistic community remains constant -- providing character for neighborhoods being swallowed whole by corporate America.

The Danville Body Shop is located next to Whole Foods between Clarendon Boulevard and Wilson Boulevard, equidistant from the Courthouse and Clarendon Metro stops at 1415 N. Danville Street in Arlington, VA 22201.

Dr. Dremo’s is located near the Court House Metro at 2001 Clarendon Blvd. in Arlington, VA 22201.

Is there going to be any heat in the building during setup?  I'm wondering if I could rehearse there.

Victor is our director of facilities and man of many trades. He is bringing over the tall ladder on Monday night. Let us know when you would like to come over. We would like you to bring your gadgets and figure out what we need to secure your silks etc.

There are twol large gas heaters in the building. If it gets colder we will get additional heating devices.
Regards,
Henrik

The Flux event last night was fantastic!! I was so excited to see so many people come out to support this event.

The music was great, and there was a fair amount of variety in the artwork that was displayed. The fire dancers were AMAZING!! They put on quite a show. Moira, the aerialist, was phenomal! Her performance was breathtaking. I heard a number of people comment about how amazing her show was.  :smt041 Best of all, I saw some people buying art!!!

Unfortunately I didn't get to make it down the street to Dremo's for the DC Counterculture festival. I was too busy selling T-shirts at the Artdc booth.

Thanks to everyone at Art Outlet, Arlington Independent Media, Artdc, DC Conspiracy and Clarendon Radio for putting this event together, and to Walnut Street Development and Dr. Dremo's for allowing Flux to be held at the Danville Body Shop and Dr. Dremo's. Also, thanks to all the volunteers who worked last night. I hope we can put together another event like this very soon.

Last night was a GREAT time!  Henrik and the guys at artoutlet did a kickass job pulling this all together and the line-up of bands and performances were perfect!!  And, I sold one of my photos!   :mrgreen:  It felt like Artomatic, with the eclectic mix of artists and work and people coming and going.  A lot of my friends trekked out to the show and everyone had a great time...even my coworker brought his 5 month old baby out and he loved the fire dancing!  :)  I really hope we can pull together another show like this very soon.

I had an awesome time and could not have been happier to see such a huge turnout for an art event. I took pics of the fire show and posted some in my gallery:
