Art Show and Color Blocking!

This past weekend I had a chance to got to an awesome art show. There is a contemporary art museum in our city and they put on alot of great art shows. They have a huge art show once a year called live coverage. Artists come from all over, some local some not, and they work on their art in front of you. They each auction off a piece that they work on during the night!

One of the rooms full of Art
I wanted the perfect dress for the fun art show so I went shopping! I found a color blocked dress at Charlotte Russe that I was in love with. I paired it with my red glasses, red earnings, and a thrifted red clutch!

There were 5 sections of art that each had a bidding time limit. In the middle there was a "Live Auction" where they had people bidding on some of the pieces. I took a video of the auctioner, it is so fun!

We had fun giant lips as our bidding cards! Hen loved how many times I asked to take his picture lol

We also got lucky and won a bid for a piece of artwork we loved! It is a little quirky but it is similar to the art Hen does so it fits with the pieces we already have up!

It says "Nostalgia is bullshit" not sure what it means lol
The night was so fun! I also made the news paper, sort of, the online version :) Check out the pic!

Hope the rest of you had a great weekend!
