An irreverent evening of art, live musical performances, surrealist games, costumed attendees and more, the Surreal Salon Soiree will be unlike anything you’ve ever experienced!
Tickets are just $15 in advance (+ $1.82 service fee charged by Eventbrite). If you come in costume, tickets at the door are still just $15 (but they're $20 if you're not in costume).
The Baton Rouge Gallery bustled Jan. 25 as live versions of various surreal artworks strolled through the crowds gathered for the annual Surreal Salon Soiree. The evening offered art lovers a chance to dress up as their favorite surreal or pop art-inspired work or idea.
Debauche, the "Russian Mafia band" from New Orleans, provided the soundtrack to the evening, during which time Marc Sivori, who was dressed as a cross between Abraham Lincoln and Jesus, earned the titled of best costume.The Elevator Projects, a Baton Rouge-based art collective, provided a living version of Candyland, the children's board game, in front of the gallery.
The Surreal Salon, the art show around which the evening was planned, will continue at the Baton Rouge Gallery through Jan. 30.
