Bemis Center For Contemporary Arts



Saturday night, our Arte del Amor Dance Party got every guest in the mood for Valentine’s Day with sizzling Salsa beats and sensuous, driving percussion. Expert choreographer & instructor Blandon Joiner gave the quick and dirty on Salsa steps to the beat of live, driving percussion, while novice and expert dancers kept the Salsa Room smoking all night long. In the Ultra Lounge, DJ Brent Crampton and Shif-D kept couples grooving with their smoothly pulsing blend of music that featured Latin, African and R&B beats. And Espana Restaurant provided sumptuous tapas and prepared a mouth-watering, three-foot round pan of paella live on site for the crowd to indulge in and savor along with their specially blended Arte del Amor cocktails. Add the passion of exceptional contemporary art for sale through our Arte del Amor benefit, and love wasn’t just in the air, it’s going to stay around all year long. And if you missed out on the Art of Love, our benefit sale continued through Valentine’s Day on Wednesday, February 14. For that special Valentine, don’t say it with flowers, say it with art—the art of love.

Special Thanks to Red Bull and Oriental Trading Company for their sponsorship of the event.
