McNay Puts a New Spin on Modern Art Letting You Experience Vinyl in a New Way
The McNay Art Museum is pleased to present Art Vinyl: Spin It Your Way, a fun and fresh after-hours event organized by the McNay Contemporary Collectors Forum (MCCF). The event is the first of its kind at the Museum and will be held Friday, September 7, 2018 from 7:00 – 10:00 PM. Tickets are $50 per person.
Nearly 300 unique works of art on vinyl by over 100 regional and national artists are for sale. Each work of art is priced at $100 (framed pieces will be priced slightly higher) and the artist will remain anonymous, lending to an element of intrigue, until the time of purchase. Artists are from San Antonio and the surrounding region, but there will also be national and international artists represented. Many artists are well established in their artistic practice, but some are also talented students from area high school and college art programs.
Featured Artists include: Richard Armendariz, Bianca Alvarez, Sabra Booth, Alyssa Danna, Raul Gonzalez, Amada Miller, Alejandro Padilla, Angie Riojas, Victoria Suescum, Terry Ybanez, Guillermina Zabala, and many more.
As guests enter McNay’s lobby for check-in, they will be greeted with Ethiopian and Brazilian jazz that will compliment specialty coffees provided by Espresso Amore Mio.
Upon check-in, guests will have the opportunity to pre-purchase uniquely numbered, red dots for $100 each. These dots are how the museum will track who purchased each art vinyl. With dots in hand, guests will enter Leeper Auditorium at 7:00pm to browse the collection of art records. Once a dot is placed on the label accompanying the record, that record is considered sold. Guests may return to the check-in desk at any time during the evening to purchase dots until they are sold out. Art Incorporated has provided frames for some vinyls on display as well as providing “jackets” for packaging all vinyls once purchased.
Complimentary cocktails provided by San Antonio Cocktail Conference will be flowing during the evening for your enjoyment, including the unveiling of the official Signature Cocktail for SA Cocktail Conference 2019. Citrus meets spice, with a sweet finish is sure to make the Signature Cocktail for the San Antonio Cocktail Conference 2019 a favorite for everyone to sip. In addition, Bohanan’s and Peggy’s on the Green will be serving an assortment of passed savory hors d’oeuves. And of course it’s not a party without chocolate, so Chocollazo will be providing exquisite, uniquely designed chocolate desserts to please your sweetest sweet tooth.
Not only will you be able to browse exclusive vinyl art, eat amazing food and drink delicious cocktails from some of San Antonio finest artists, you will be entertained by DJ Rikko who will be spinning music all evening. You can dance the night away on a custom dance floor created by San Antonio-based artist Raul Gonzalez designed for maximum dance-groove enjoyment.
This event will be fun and for a great cause, highlighting the vinyl revolution and the MCCF’s love of art collecting. This event will be a sellout, so buying tickets early is encouraged.
