GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – A sweeping experience in the arts is set during “Unhinged” this weekend at The Weidner at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay.
According to a news release: The event is “a one-of-a-kind multi-sensory exhibition featuring over 60 artists.”
The exhibition opens at 7 p.m. Oct. 21-22. Info: weidnercenter.com or unhingedexhibition.com.
Kent Hutchinson, participating artist and event organizer, says efforts were coordinated with the Weidner Center’s innovative staff “to create an absolutely thrilling event.
“You’ll come face-to-face with a drag horror punk rock artist, then be swept up in a modern twist on traditional pointe ballet while almost at the same time become engulfed in a visual auditory installation depicting the internal horrors of cognitive impairments.”
The diverse artists spanning disciplines will showcase their work in areas of the building usually not open to audiences.
Creative attire is strongly encouraged for “Unhinged attendees.”
The press release says, “Come hungry, come thirsty and be ready to end the night with a dance party directly on The Weidner’s main stage in Cofrin Family Hall.”
Kelli Strickland, executive and artistic director of The Weidner, says the event will be unlike anything The Weidner has ever presented.
“ ‘Unhinged’ attendees are invited to explore all corners of The Weidner, stumbling upon discovering art installations, exhibits and performances in surprising places – in bathrooms, dressing rooms, backstage, stairwells, restrooms and more,” she says. “Enjoy creative culinary concoctions, sip cocktails and socialize as you go.”
