PERFORMER FOR "The Island of Misfit Art"!!!
We are excited to announce "The Island of Misfit Art" Performer:
Leela Sophina "Queen of the Air"
Leela Sophina is an aerial dance trapeze and sling artist who ran away with the circus years ago. She continues to find herself running away and swept up in a whirlwind of lovely talented people who influence her daily. She's been known to collect feathers, fake mustaches, talents, and travel the country in numerous adventurous ways. She is commonly seen dressing up, playing in peoples yards, woods, cooking with people, and enjoying meals after swaying in the breeze whether it be on a mountain, in a holler, in a tree, or in your town. She gets up when the sun rises, and curls up for a nights worth of dreams after it sets and after she read by candle light. Leela is a member of Music City Burlesque and has performed in shows with Cirque Bezerk, Gooferman, Mutaytor, The Goat Family Circus, and random carnivale freak-shows.

WINTER SHOW VENUE FOR "The Island of Misfit Art"
We have confirmed the DUE WEST PROFESSIONAL BUILDING as our venue for the Winter show! Did you know that they have studio, exhibition and performance space? Well, it's pretty awesome and we are happy to help spread the word about this space.
One super cool thing about this venue is that we will not be bringing the Untitled panels for installation, which those of you who have experienced carrying 8 foot panels up stairs will appreciate. The venue has a hanging system in place, which will definitely require all hanging pieces to have wire attached.
Thanks to the fine folks at the venue for working with us!
