Corpus Christi, TX: K Space Contemporary is excited to announce that plans are underway for Wig Out 2009, our signature fundraiser. This annual event – where wigs are strictly required! – will be held on Thursday, October 29, 2009, 7:30 to 10:00 p.m. at K Space Contemporary.
Co-chairs, Sharon Custer Cave and Omar Lopez, have set a fundraising goal of $15,000. Proceeds from Wig Out will be used for gallery operations; to help fund our unique art education programs and exceptional exhibitions; and to enable us to continue to set the highest standard for contemporary art in South Texas.
WigOut 2009 kicks off with a Wig Parade aboard the DTown Tram during ArtWalk. Lead sponsor, Partida Tequila is providing specialty margaritas for the entire evening. Stylists from Corpus Christi’s best salons are designing wigs for the event, which will be modeled throughout the evening. Wig Out will include door prizes, food, drinks, silent auction and an art sale of works by many the region’s best known artists. Entertainment includes a special appearance by the cast of the Rocky Horror Picture Show, Master of Ceremonies Rache’l Payne, and music by DJ Curtis Rock.
At 10:00 pm WigOut will move to one of Corpus Christi’s most respected and recognizable downtown hot spots, House of Rock. Scarecrow People will headline the amazing WigOut After-Party where all the fun continues.
