A Send-Off Party

When: Fri., Sept. 9 2016

In an effort to raise awareness for issues including homelessness, vacancy and the environment, local artist and infamous gallery owner Loren Naji will spend the next several weeks living inside an 8-ft diameter, 1,000 lbs. wooden sphere he built out of reclaimed materials from demolished homes throughout Northeast Ohio, as well as homes in Detroit and Grand Rapids. Starting with a send-off party during Friday’s Walkabout Tremont, Naji will travel to the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit and Grand Rapids for the eighth annual ArtPrize, where more than 400,000 attendees will visit 170 venues and vote to award a $200,000 top prize, and more than half a million dollars in prizes overall. Check it out for yourself at Prosperity Social Club from 6 to 9 tonight during Walkabout Tremont. Naji will be on hand to explain his project to guests, who will get a first look before Naji heads to Michigan later that night. In celebration of his journey’s kickoff, Prosperity will be mixing up a special Bon Voyage Emoh Cocktail, chilled with round ice balls for $9. Five percent of the proceeds from all food and drink sales that evening will be donated to St. Augustine’s Hunger Center on West 14th Street. Free. (Usmani)
