Evening art party to offer live music, prizes

The Blaffer Student Association presents its Red Block Bash from 4-7 p.m. at the fine arts courtyard with art-related activities, live entertainment and free food.

Past entertainment has largely included acoustic solo artists and bands, said the president of the organization, Marcada Claybon.

Some of the scheduled performers include Men of Moores, the UH Dance Ensemble and bands Bob’s Your Uncle and PBP.

Other small activities will include a drawing competition, scavenger hunt, sun printing and a museum tour.

As with previous bashes, a raffle will take place at the end and prizes will be given out.

Students will receive cards that will be stamped during each activity of and turned in to receive a ticket.

“The prizes usually include museum memberships or gift cards,” Claybon said.

“One semester the grand prize was an iPod, which may also be a prize.”

Since the museum is currently under renovation the art tour portion of the evening will include public art by local artists displayed around campus.

The Red Block Bash is held once a semester since 2005.

The event’s main objective is to get students interested and involved with the Blaffer Art Museum while offering them a day to unwind outdoors as the end of the semester draws near.
