Underground Up
Art in General’s 2nd Annual Saturday Night Party

Saturday, October 17, 2009, 8pm to 11pm
87 Lafayette Street, New York NY 10013

Art in General will offer audiences and art patrons a one-time opportunity to view unique
new works by graffiti and street artists Cake, Cern, and Chris Stain at its 2nd Annual
Saturday Night party, Underground Up, on October 17th from 8-11 pm. As part of a
fundraiser for the nonprofit that supports emerging artists with the production and
presentation of new work, the artists have been asked to create unique pieces on the day
of the event for the walls of an old firehouse on Lafayette Street. To be fully realized, the
works will require participation by attendees who will also enjoy complimentary beer,
wine, cocktails, music, and dancing.

The event will offer art enthusiasts with a desire to support the arts an opportunity to do so outside the pricey sit-down gala format. With Art in General's line-up of artists, open bar and music, and its history of organizing great events, the party is sure to be worth the $100 donation.

The event poses a significant challenge for the artists – creating a new work in under eight hours – a task that remains in line with Art in General’s tradition of presenting unconventional and experimental new work.
