Silver Street Studios was transformed into a celestial venue for Fresh Arts’ Space Ball, celebrating the grassroots arts org’s mission to grow relationships among local artists and between the arts community and the Houston public.
Plenty of patrons played dress-up, arriving ready to party in creative costumes inspired by the likes of Star Trek, Space Balls and even Sesame Street. The violet-washed dance floor teemed with characters in crazy wigs, metallic ensembles and outrageous eyewear, getting down to tunes spun by DJ Lady Bunny between bidding on works by local artists in the silent auction.
Houston breakdancing crew HaviKoro and aerial dancers from Vault gave rousing performances while guests, including honorees Don Mafrige Jr., Rebekah Johnson, Chris Johnson and Nancy Wozny looked on. Astronomically audacious! –Photos by Mike Charlton
