Locust Projects Celebrates 2014 Spring Fling: La Dolce Vita

Locust Projects will celebrate the good life at its 2014 Spring Fling: La Dolce Vita, on April 26 at the critically acclaimed Herzog & De Meuron designed 1111 Building on Lincoln Road. Locust Projects’ Spring Fling brings art lovers together for a unique evening featuring art, delicious food, drinks, music – and Locust Projects’ first-ever silent auction of fine wines, led by Eric Larkee, Wine Director of the Genuine Hospitality Group. As a hallmark that makes Locust Projects stand out from other art venues, Locust Projects embraces cutting-edge exhibitions and innovative installations. “We are celebrating more than 15 years of providing local, national and internationally based contemporary visual artists the freedom to experiment with new ideas and methods without the limitations of conventional exhibition spaces. Community support has always been vital to Locust Projects’ success and the Spring Fling is one of Locust Projects’ most important sources of revenue for the year” says Locust Projects Executive Director, Chana Sheldon. The proceeds from this event provide essential funding for exhibitions and programming; for more information visit:www.locustprojects.org.
