Glam Slam reflects Gamut Gallery’s values of community, the art of the happening and eco-consciousness. Recycling clothing into a swap saves room in a landfill and resources for new garments, while breathing new life into your beloved leftovers. This biannual event will leave you grinning from ear to ear!
HOW IT WORKS
1) Bring clothing you no longer want
– all sizes, styles, and seasons of men’s and women’s wearable goods welcome
– try stuff on, aka “play dress-up!”
– step into the photo booth to capture your good looks
– let loose, make friends and have fun
2) Leave with new-to-you gear!
– bring a bag or two to carry home your swap findings
– except for the real gems (which will we store for the next Glam Slam), all the left over gear will be gifted to charity
MINNEAPOLIS–Saturday, April 19, 2014, 6:00-9:00 p.m., Gamut Gallery presents the spring installment of their biannual event Glam Slam. This is not an ordinary clothing swap; at this event, guests model swap-treasures in a professional photobooth. Everyone becomes part of the entertainment as their antics are documented to a hip, eclectic soundtrack. Professional hair and makeup stations will be provided, all included in admission. Presale tickets are $12 available at Gamut Gallery in downtown Minneapolis or at brownpapertickets.com or at the door for $15.
Guests enter through the gallery, where there will be a brief reception against the backdrop of drawing exhibit, “The Lost Art,” curated by local art icon Scott Seekins. Ticket holders are then welcomed into the gallery’s studio downstairs where the swap takes place. All guests’ swap contributions are folded and hung in the studio in an avant-garde, pop-up boutique. Guests are welcome to take home whatever they choose; all swap acquisitions are included in the price of admission. Glam Slam veterans have been known to instigate outrageous photoshoots, recruiting newcomers into off-the-wall outfits and hilarious poses.
Ticket holders will receive: entry to the party with soundtrack provided by The DJ Bob Marino and light refreshments; a convenient and fun way to charitably gift clothing, accessories and outerwear of any size, style or season; access to professionally lit photo booth backdrops and props; photos available via facebook; access to professional make-up artist station and hair stylist station; access to a private dressing room; and any swap goods they choose.
