Party of the Year!!!

DADA Co-chairs Lisa Mayle, Christine Sutherland and Michelle Mendez

Get your DADA on at The Center for Contemporary Art’s anti-gala house party on Saturday, September 24, 2011, 7:30-11:30 pm. Taking place at The Center’s headquarters at 2020 Burnt Mills Road in Bedminster, this much anticipated fundraiser will celebrate the whimsy, imagery and inspiration of the international artistic and literary movement know as Dadaism.

Art studios will be transformed into a hip and happening venue where guests will experience the vibes of DJ Frankie Frank, black light body and graffiti painting, Cabaret Voltaire, timed portraits, slight of hand magic, video projections, pocket art and more. Featured entertainers from the Little Top Circus and Medicine Show will bring a refreshing dose of different as they pop up in unexpected places complete with ringmaster, burlesque queen, vocals, percussion, lovely assistant and more. This unique theatrical cast will enliven the mundane as they replicate the antics and characters of a 19th c. sideshow. Food, drink and dancing will round out this lively art-themed, surprise-filled and interactive evening.

DADA Co-Chairs are Lisa Mayle, Michelle Mendez and Christine Sutherland. Lisa Mayle is President of The Center’s Board of Trustees and long-time resident of Bernardsville. Michelle Mendez and Christine Sutherland are owners of downtown Bernardsville Wallflowers Gallery.

Be hip, be square, be you, be me, be there…be DADA! Reservations for the event are $75 and up per person. Guests must be 21 years+. Facilities are fully accessible. Please call The Center for Contemporary Art at 908-234-2345 or go to its website to purchase a ticket or make a tax-deductible donation
