You’ll be glad you came! It’s Unbound Visual Arts’ 8th annual Mardi Gras and Art Sale. It’s the only Mardi Gras celebration with an arts theme in Greater Boston and its a fundraiser to support Unbound Visual Arts’ art programs and events. It’s an evening of fun and celebration for all Unbound Visual Arts members, guests and friends at the very popular Stockyard Restaurant, 135 Market Street, Brighton. We’ll have a live Mardi Gras jazz band, Uptown Rulers, complimentary appetizers, a full cash bar, an art sale and show of UVA member’s work, dancing, art slide show, a silent auction and a 50/50 raffle. Come and be part of the excitement. Costumes are optional and we’ll provide the Mardi Gras masks, beads and feathers. Share a good time with artists and other art enthusiasts from throughout the area. The Stockyard is conveniently located on the 86, 70 and 70A bus lines and it’s handicapped accessible. There is also ample free auto and bike parking in their on-site parking lot. Costumes are optional but do wear the traditional Mardi Gras colors. The traditional colors are purple, green and gold. Green represents faith. Gold represents power. Purple represents justice.
UVA Members, current and new, can participate in the art sale:
Uptown Rulers is a local New Orleans style band led by featuring Chris Coughlin on keys. The other musicians may include Jess Fox and Scott Miller on a slew of Saxes, Scott Kremer on Bass, Philip Oullette & Ukumbwa Sauti on Drums.
