Bands The Dirty Hooks, Same Sex Mary And Other Local Musicians Bring Their Lyrics to Art Exhibition


The Dirty Hooks, Same Sex Mary, and Stereoglass along with musicians Cameron Calloway, Jesse Pino, and Mike Xavier will have their lyrics feature at AIGA Las Vegas 4th Annual Lush Words + Design, a Collaborative Exhibition.

This year the exhibition has been extended to include the lyrics from an array of locally acclaimed and seasoned Las Vegas bands and musicians.

The exhibition at Escape Artist Studios in Art Square on First Friday, July 5, 2019 at 6 pm will feature poetry performances hosted by Reese Darko beginning at 8pm.

The event will feature original, framed typographic artwork created as a collaborative effort between local poets, lyricists, artists, and designers. Artists and graphic designers have created visual interpretations of poems and song lyrics.

Attendees can take part in a silent auction for the works of art.
