Victory Media Network Unveiling: Friday night, January 19, benefiting Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing Arts. Tickets are $100 each.
According to the Victory Media Network website, "The Victory Media Network® will be the first large-scale, outdoor digital arts gallery in the world ... Incorporated within the striking architecture of Victory Plaza will be eleven large, high-resolution LED screens. Eight of these screens -- four on each side of the Plaza -- will move along horizontal tracks to allow for a myriad of configurations and motion possibilities. These screens can also be combined in sets of four to create 31' x 53' "super screens" with HD resolution. High fidelity sound and an extensive theatrical lighting system will heighten the experience to an immersive level." Here are some images from the website.
Last summer they ran a contest for artists to submit photos and other artworks to display on the giant screens. Some of the selections are displayed on the Victory website at the above link. Be sure to click on "Watch the VMN trailer" to get a better idea of what the area will look like.
The party will be tented and there is also outdoor access, DJs spinning tunes and so much more.
Here's a link to the invitation and to buy tickets. There is sound on this page: http://www.victorymedianetwork.com/event/victory_park.php
Dallas Mardi Gras benefiting the American Red Cross:
"Think masks, crowns, hats, boas and feathers," says JB Hayes, chairman. "The attire is Mardi Gras masquerade cocktail, so masks are a must!"
The party features the very cool D VIP Lounge for underwriters sponsored by D Home and D magazine.
The Belo Mansion will rock away to the powerful blues tunes from Dallas' own Edwin Holt and his 12-piece Conspiracy Band.
And for the lunch bunch, Tom E. Garcia, Managing Director, The Adolphus presents Authors at The Adolphus, Thursday, January 25.
