The Dizzy Arts produces its biggest show yet on December 19th, 2015, The Dizzy Arts Party 12. The mission has been to build Baton Rouge’s artistic identity in a variety of domains: fashion, comedy, music, and visual art. Dizzy Arts Party 12 erupts this bold mission into seven 3rd Street venues in one night with local artwork and music at Happy’s Irish Pub, The Roux House, Lucy’s, Boudreaux and Thibodeaux’s, The Office, The Draft House, and Raising Cane’s.
Raising Cane’s on 3rd Street kicks off the night by hosting a fundraiser for Dizzy Arts from 6 to 9pm. The tall windows and tables will be beautifully adorned with the artwork of local high school students, one of many venues with art displayed. For all patrons that say “Dizzy Arts” at this Cane’s location, 15% of the sales will be donated to Dizzy Arts to fund local art shows, commissions, and projects around the city. The Dunham School‘s 9th grade art program will have work on display as we celebrate young artists.
Lucy’s patio will feature 3 junior high/high school bands brought to you by Baton Rouge Music Studios and the young talent of our local schools. These bands were the winning submissions for the Dizzy Arts first High School Art and Music Expo: Paleo Noise, Clove, and The Sun Room.
The Office above IPO from 9pm to midnight brings Dizzy Arts sponsors Banana Republic and Aristocracy together to show beautiful fashion on local models. Local designers also take this opportunity to showcase their original fabrications.
Boudreaux and Thibodeaux’s will feature Baton Rouge Comedy upstairs on the balcony from 6 to 9pm, headlined by host Robert Rau. Dizzy Arts and Baton Rouge Comedy partners up yet again to make crowds laugh and add a hilarious dimension to the local performance spotlight.
Happy’s Irish Pub serves as Dizzy Arts’ main stage all night from 8pm to close, featuring Dirty Mike and the Boys, KluSlim, Billy Donuts, Funkin Fierce, and Ragamuffin Marching Band Orchestra Allstars. Rock, hip-hop, electronic, acoustic, and funk have never looked this good on the same stage.
With artwork from locals on display at each venue, high school students showing their work, and sponsors weaving together a community effort, Dizzy Arts Party 12 is sure to bring out families in support of local art and continues to demonstrate Baton Rouge’s original creative spirit.
