The Chosen Ones: February 5-9, 2011

Saturday, February 5 – Dodekapus Presents: I Can Dream All Day, Art Show at Relapse Theatre 200 Permalume Place NW, Atlanta, GA, 30318

Though not a music event, the Dodekapus Art Collective event, I Can Dream All Day brings imagination and creativity to the forefront, while also raising funds and awareness for some worthy humanitarian efforts. The art show, Saturday, February 5, takes place in the warehouse of the wonderful Relapse Theatre, where the group of collaborative artists will offer “a wild and experimental journey through the land of dreams and nightmares with magical performances, pillow fights, mysterious potions, and extravagant displays of the imagination.”

The experience gets started at 8pm and is only $5, unless you bring a canned food item for the Atlanta Community Food Bank, in which case your entry drops to $3. A silent auction of artwork created by a group of kids at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta will also be running throughout the evening, with proceeds going back to this top-notch non-profit institution. The artwork being auctioned off was made during Dodekapus’ visit to the Children’s hospital in December, when the collective threw an art party for these kids, helping them visually depict their hopes and dreams.
