Don’t miss out on the Pittsburgh art scene’s social event of the year!!! It’s time once again for The Sprout Fund’s 7th annual Hothouse summer benefit on Saturday, August 29th at Walnut Capital’s new Bakery Square development on Penn Ave in Pittsburgh’s East End. City Creative plans on being there (assuming we hurry up and get our tix soon) so you should too!
From The Sprout Fund:
“An unforgettable evening of live music, local artists, performances, and food & drink awaits you at Hothouse 2009. A record crowd of more than 2,400 made last year’s event the party of the summer and #2 in the “10 Best Parties of 2008,” according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.”
“Hothouse is The Sprout Fund’s annual benefit and showcase event. The event serves as a stage to present a sampling of some of the innovative projects and emerging leaders of successful community initiatives supported by Sprout over the past year. Held annually at unique development sites, the event celebrates the organization’s accomplishments and features live music and performances, food and drink by Pittsburgh favorites, a silent auction, and a VIP reception.”
“For one night and one night only, party-goers will experience the transformative power of creativity and innovation, enjoy the company of Pittsburgh’s cultural, culinary, and civic change makers, and explore the curious creations of event architect Thommy Conroy and the sublime scenes cast by the light maestros at Clear Story Creative.
Don’t miss this exciting showcase of the innovative projects and emerging leaders shaping our community. At Hothouse 2009, you’ll find exhibitions and programming from more than 25 Sprout-supported community-based projects including Seed Award projects past and present, the 2009 Sprout Public Art mural designs, and Micro Spark projects funded by Spark, Sprout’s newest program that is energizing the creativity of children in Southwestern Pennsylvania.”
