BRUSH – New Monthly Arts Event on Near East Side
From The Dispatch:
New Near East Side social event adopts hip urban attitude
By Kevin Joy
Seeking an art-focused nighttime alternative, graphic designer Marshall Shorts founded the monthly BRUSH in February. “In the black community, art is kind of a dying culture,” said Shorts, 25, of the East Side. “It’s my motive to help revive that.”
For $10 on the first Saturday of the month, patrons can sip a beer or glass of white wine, or sample live tunes or a disc jockey’s stylings. Perhaps most appealing, they can create art with their peers (small canvases, brushes and paint are distributed to guests).
The April gathering of BRUSH will take place from 8 to midnight tonight in the loft space above the Urban-Spirit Coffee Shop, 893 E. Long St. Admission is $10 for patrons 18 and older.
