Thursday night at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art is the next Atelier event. I'm excited about this one as it riffs off the current exhibitions Stranger Than Fiction and An American Century.
Somehow our Education staff has wrangled Santa Barbara Indy Arts Editor Charles Donelan into helping guests compose a 6 word autobiography into a special cocktail mixed by the masters from the newly reopened Savoy.
I'm also going to check out the Portrait Studio by Stranger Than Fiction artist Frohawk Two Feathers. He came to the opening and instantly charmed the staff and guests. For this event he'll create the Imperial Portrait Studio in the galleries. You can pose with all sorts of props, the artist will take your portrait, and you may find yourself in a future artwork. Plus you'll get a Polaroid to take home. Dress up and a gift - who can resist that?
Last, but not least, Santa Barbara favorite Jim Connolly will improvise scores for a silent film by Paul Strand and Charles Sheeler.

PS Forgot to mention that there will be a magician too!
