Michelle has been a huge advocate and mentor to other artists in Denver over the years, says friend and spokeswoman Heather Shannon, who adds that the enthusiasm for this event has been overwhelming. It's a real testament to Michelle Barnes and the closeness of the arts community in Denver. We take care of our people.
Partyers will be treated to more than one art exhibit, including one of Barnes's works and another featuring an eclectic mix of local artwork. There will be live music by Boba Fett and the Americans, Reed Weimer & Moe Perdue and an ambient-music duo, as well as food by La Cueva and wine by Joy Wine & Spirits. Contributions can be made to a money tree, and raffle tickets will be sold for a chance to win one of Barnes's beautiful illustrations.
Admission is a suggested donation of $10 at the door; get details at http://rivernorthart.squarespace.com/crow/midsummers-night-benefit-party-for-michelle-barnes.html.
