Create:Fixate Drops Some Wisdom

This Saturday (3/7,) Create:Fixate is hosting its first event of 2009, “Wisdom Within Us.”

Now, I’ll be the first one to admit that I’m an art neophyte. I couldn’t tell you what qualifies as “good.” I just know what I like when I see it. This event seems tailor made for me, because it features a lot of different artists working in various mediums (ie. lots of variety for a guy like me to enjoy.)

I say “event” because this isn’t going to be just an art show.  Oh, there will be art in the traditional sense – painting, photography, sculpture, installations – but there’s more. A lot more.

Follow me past the jump to find out just how much more, and how you can join me for the fun (and, you know, culture and stuff.)

In addition to there being too many artists to list, “Wisdom Within Us” will also feature fashion and jewelery designs, live painting (see the art as it’s created,) and edible sculpture (Hip Hop Chocolate) by Marcus Gray. Admittedly, that last bit has me intrigued.

Also on exhibit will be an animated short created by Los Angeles middle and high school students as part of the National Endowment for the Arts’ Big Read literacy program.

The part of the show that I’m most interested in isn’t the art you can see, but the art you can hear.  The Audio Lab will feature live music and DJs spinning House, Dub, World Beats and more. The evening will be topped off with one of my favorite DJs/producers, Adam Freeland,  hitting the decks for a dj set that begins at 1:15am.

There’s a lot going on with this show (even more than I’ve mentioned here,) and it all happens Saturday night from 7:00pm-3:00am at the Premiere Events Center downtown. Complete details can be found at Create:Fixate‘s web site.

So, who else is coming out to take in the art & grooves (and Adam Freeland) with me?

  1. My philosophy is expose yourself to as much as possible. If it strikes a cord the piece works and the artist did his job. Finally, always buy art that matches your soul, not the sofa.

  2. Fraz, that’s always been the way that I buy art. People look in my house and think that nothing matches, but it all matches…me.

    Lucinda, you know hip hop chocolates? Do you think we’ll actually get to eat the sculpture at the show? Man, I hope so. I’m not even much of a chocolate fan, but I’m kind of looking forward to it. A lot.
