Radical Art Beauty Salon + Dark Sweaty All Night Dance Floor

Artists will do you up and you will dance it out.

How it works: You pick an option from our menu of salon services. Nails done by a painter? Hair diorama by a sculptor? Makeup by a conceptual artist? Performance artist paraffin dip? No matter your desire, one of our artists will attend to your every need.

Mickalene Thomas (whose solo exhibition ‘Origin of the Universe’ opens at the Brooklyn Museum September 28) will be doing body painting:

Have Alyssa Dennis paint you some of the most intricate, beautiful nail art you’ve ever seen (she will be using tiny, tiny brushes):

Artists Mickalene Thomas, Dzine, Dustin Yellin, Swoon, Duke Riley, Natalie Frank, K8 Hardy, Chris Stain & Billy Mode, Michael Anderson plus many more, will be donating their talents in the name of benefiting the re-envisioning of a formerly abandoned church in North Braddock, PA.

Amongst the salon stations and a multi level landscape, bodies will move and shake to the sounds of Dj Roofeeo, Dirtyfinger, Manhate and 3 Kings International Sound. Special installations and performances by Lady Circus’ Anya Sapozhnikova, Marshall LaCount, Shenandoah Davis, Audra Pace and Yea, Well, Whatever will also be presented.

You deserve to be here.
