The artists and attorneys behind this unique event have some vague political aims--mostly to foster mingling and networking among the city's many different creative communities--but the party they favor most is the kind that involves beer, Ruffles and French onion dip. At once a meeting ground for local artists of all stripes and a sort of coming-out party for the Gulch, this soiree serves up a smorgasbord of the region's arts--music by Rachel Pearl and Milktooth, dance interaction with the Blue Moves Modern Dance Group, films courtesy of the Nashville Film Festival and FilmNashville, and works by numerous area artists, including Sheila B. and Cindy Wunsch. The most popular installations, however, may be the open bar stocked by Ajax Turner and the food stations featuring Gulch hotspots such as Flyte, Station Inn, Sambuca and Cantina Laredo. The $30 tickets and a well-stocked silent auction benefit Volunteer Lawyers & Professionals for the Arts, where director Casey Gill Summar is quietly becoming the connective tissue that links some of Nashville's most diverse arts organizations.
