Art! Beer! Wings! The Radioactive Bodega Preview Party
It was, appropriately, an evening of cultural dissonance. Supporters of IS 183 Art School of the Berkshires (including Karen Lee and Jeremy Goodwin, left) gathered at the boozy Brick House Pub in Housatonic, MA, to preview some of the fine art that will be part of the silent auction at the school’s annual masquerade fundraiser on March 6. The festive dance party’s counterintuitive theme—“Radioactive Bodega”— inspired the organizers to show fine art in an improbable frat house setting, a saloon where the light fixtures over the pool tables say “Budweiser” and the specialty of the house is Buffalo chicken wings.
