The Direct Arts World's Fair

On May 17th, Direct Arts invites you to imagine an alternate utopian universe - one where tax dollars go towards arts and education, rather than war and where artists making intimate, articulate, relevant theater and film can not only survive but thrive... one where minority artists and their stories are considered both viable and necessary to the mainstream.  Direct Arts celebrates this vision at The Direct Arts World's Fair, a retro-futuristic extravaganza to benefit their intercultural theater and film programs in 2011-2012.

Our 3rd Annual Benefit promises to be a pretty wild event. Jenny Rocha & Her Painted Ladies will interpret Billy Rose's Aquacade and Al Gori will be on hand with his Homespun Merry-go-Round. We're excited to have DJ Jaiko Suzuki with her encyclopedic awareness of international pop AND this year, guests will meet The Philanthrobot, whose edifying antics dispel the mysteries of donating to the arts!
