Tinney Contemporary is honored to participate in the first annual ARTDOCS Benefit on Thursday, October 15th from 6 to 9 pm downtown at the Fifth Avenue Arcade. ARTDOCS will offer much-needed medical care to visual artists, writers, musicians and other performing artists in need of routine and urgent health services. One of the first programs of its kind in the country, ARTDOCS will give members of Nashville’s creative community a place to turn to address their often-overlooked medical concerns.
The Event features live music (Drummers, Percy Person, Charles Butler Group, Matt Urmy Band), food, wine and beer, fire dancers, the Nashville Rollergirls, Miss Lolly Pop’s Burlesque Coterie, Dr Sketchy’s Anti Art School, Playing by Air’s juggling and circus acts, the Spinderella’s Hula Hoop Extravaganza, live works by Graffiti artist Ragoe (Jon Judkins) and other Bizarre and amazing events. There will also be a silent auction and a small live art auction where extraordinary curios, mysterious and valuable gewgaws and fine art works will be auctioned off. 100% of these proceeds will go to ARTDOCS as well as 10% of all gallery sales for the evening. Finally, an art auction that benefits artists!
A $10 wristband charge at the Arcade entrance, which grants admission to this extraordinary event, also benefits ARTDOCS. Come celebrate with us! It’s guaranteed to be a blast!
