Oct 4, 2011. 7:00 p.m.
Join Tigertail on Tuesday, October 4, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at Wynwood Walls, 2506 NW 2nd Avenue in Miami, for another lively Season Kickoff Party. The event is free. The 2011-2012 season’s slogan is ExpectedUnexpected, and the party will live up to this motto.
Attendees will enjoy the outrageous New York City performance artist Pat Oleszko and her inflatable art, surrounded by the beautiful street-art murals of Wynwood Walls. There will be special appearances by guest artists and the Tigertail WordSpeak team hot from Brave New Voices in San Francisco. Season tickets and other prizes will be offered, and partiers will be invited to create their own murals.
Pat Oleszko makes a spectacle of herself – and doesn’t mind if you laugh. The New Yorker says “She’s a rhyming, punning, vogueing, shrieking performer – a social critic, a comic, and a vamp. Utilizing elaborate costumes and props, she has created lithe performances, films, installations that address trees, knees, breasts, butts, elephants and fingers. She has worked from the popular art forms of the street, party, parade and burlesque house, to the Museum of Modern Art, from Sesame Street Magazine to Ms, Playboy, and Artforum. A much decorated artist, literally and figuratively, she has received a Guggenheim Fellowship and awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, New York Foundation for the Arts, the Jim Hensen Foundation and many others. She has exhibited and performed at many venues and museums, including a memorable show at the Bass Museum in 1993, about which the Sun Sentinel wrote, “Simply, Oleszko is the grande dame of performance art.”
