Attention all freaks, geeks, plastics and preps: SPACES gives you prom on your terms!
Cleveland, OH, July 29, 2009—Grab a date (or two), break out the boutonnieres; and call up your clique. For those who didn’t get asked, had too much “punch,” got kicked out for cross-dressing, or wore the wrong dress, here is your mulligan for the enchanted evening you were promised in high-school. Join us for our annual benefit party, Erie Prom: Enchantment Under the Lake. The big bash/splash will take place on Saturday, November 7, 2009 at SPACES (2220 Superior Viaduct, Cleveland, OH 44113). This night to remember begins with a VIP party and ends with a gallery chock full of great art for sale, games, campy photo opps (complete with the trellis), and dancing (without chaperones). Tickets will be available for purchase online (www.SPACESgallery.org) on Monday, August 10, 2009.
Following SPACES’ fall experimental-school-as-exhibition, The Plum Academy: An Institute for Situational Practices (September 11 – October 23, 2009), we cap off the school season with a prom you won’t want to forget this time around. Paying homage to our Great Lake Erie, we claim the grand theme with a new twist. Remember: This is your do-over—YOUR prom. Creativity, outsiders and weirdness are not only condoned, but encouraged! Wear what you really wanted to wear the first time around, or come decked out in Lake Erie-inspired duds. Whether you feel pretty in pink, dapper in a tux or you want to flex those Zebra Mussels, this is your all-access hall-pass to one of Cleveland’s wildest parties of the year. Proceeds from the event make SPACES’ programming and operations possible.
