On December 19, experience an unforgettable night as the Hilton Anatole, along with the freestyle art squad from the Just-Us League, presents the Creative Kids Artshow Gala 2011! Two worlds collide when members of Dallas’ edgy underground art community join Dallas socialites for an evening you won’t want to miss. Beneath the Nebula in the atrium, a diverse assortment of artists from the Just-Us League will be working in various mediums creating several holiday-themed pieces in only 111 minutes! Then, to top off the night, all eleven artists will come together to create a larger-than-life portrayal of a snow-frosted landscape of downtown Dallas. Completing their first collaborate mural on January 11, 2011, these artists pride themselves on coming together “for the power of one,” - this diverse crew of professional and amateur artists deeply roots itself in the number one. The Just-Us League’s founder Jerod Alexander was the artist behind an eye-catching wall mural in the current Gaultier Exhibit at Dallas Museum of Art (DMA), and has since been commissioned to create the official Gaultier show poster that will be sold in DMA gift shops until February 2012.
All pieces created that evening will be available during the live auction, with proceeds benefitting ArtLoveMagic (ALM), a non-profit organization that produces free art workshops for children in Dallas through their Creative Kids Art Supply Fund. At 10PM there will be a special presentation on the Jade Pavilion by the celebrity host and the Anatole’s general manager Harold Rapoza to JUL and ALM.There will be surprise performance acts by dancers and musicians alike in addition to all of the live art creations, and all of this spectacular entertainment will be amidst the opulent Christmas decorations that the Hilton Anatole will have up throughout the month of December. The month-long Christmas at the Anatole celebration has an assortment of events, food and drinks, and special packages that have been custom tailored for this time of year.
We know you’re curious, so come watch this motley crew of underground artists come together for charity at the Hilton Anatole on December 19, 2011 from 8PM – 12AM. A live DJ and cash bar will be available for entertainment and cocktails. The event is free, and complimentary valet is also available at the Tower Entrance.
