Art, meet fashion. Fashion, meet art. Now go mingle and produce a beautiful union. That's the idea, at least, of the second annual Shoe Ball benefiting the Museum of Contemporary Art/Denver. "We see this as a crossover event between art and fashion, worlds that intersect so often," says the museum's Tara Olney. This year the event will not only include art that features shoes or interprets the shoe theme, but live performance art, with trainers being painted on site, courtesy of 400, the hip sneaker shop in the Golden Triangle. The Yummies will man the turntables, and there will be a blind raffle of twenty artworks by some of the city's favorite artists, including Dale Chisman, Sushe and Tracy Felix, Carlos Frésquez, Jeff Starr, Tracy Weil and Roland Bernier (whose "SHOED" is pictured above). Tickets for tonight's gala are $60 for museum members, $75 for non-members, or $500 for couples who want to be entered in the raffle. Strap on your most fabulous, outrageous heels and dance on over to the Asbury Event Center, 3011 Vallejo Street, between 7 and 11 p.m.
Sat., May 6, 7-11 p.m.
