Spring Street Studios Hosts a Party and 1st 150 Guests Get a Free Dreambar

The various artists who work out of the studios at Spring Street Studios are opening their doors once again, this time for an event called "A Miidsummer Night’s Dreambar” complete with a free ice cream bar for the first 150 visitors in the door.

Scheduled for 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. this Thursday (July) the event at 1824 Spring Street will also board free St. Arnold's beer and dancing to music. 

According to a press release from Mildred's Umbrella Artistic Director Jennifer Decker: "Why Dreambar? It is a Throwback Thursday nod to the joy of frozen treats from the ice cream man on a hot, summer evening, but the REAL treat of the evening for visitors will be meeting a community of working visual and performing artists and purchasing incredible artworks directly from their creators."

Oh and you'll be able to see and buy artwork if you are so inclined at this home base for Mildred's and Stark Naked Theatre Co. in addition to all the visual artists. Highlights include:

A building-wide exhibition called "Dreams and Visions: the Artist's Perspective," organized by photographer Cheri Randolph and curated by recent University of Houston graduate Chelsea Shannon.

Photographer and event coordinator Gary Watson says there will be complimentary light bites from Prego, Torchy’s Tacos, Les Givral’s and Beavers as well as live music by Leslie Krafka, the Houston Songwriters Association 2010 Songwriter of the Year.
