Joce Rent / Man'Dance/ Mrs. Paintbrush/ Cutups & KEEB$
Spirit First Friday is a free monthly event organized to showcase Pittsburgh’s local artists and musicians. Each month, a new artist(s) are displayed on the walls of Spirit’s lower level Lodge for the duration of the month. July 2019’s featured artist is Joce Rent.
Rent is a Pittsburgh native with a background in dance, theatre, visual art, and as a musician. Her artwork reflects patterns seen in nature as well as movement and music. Visual art is her abstract way of expressing emotions as she experiences the world. Each drawing or painting usually begins with a line or shape and from there Rent creates an image from her imagination. The movement in her work reflects the ever changing world around her. Rent’s artwork can be found online at https://www.facebook.com/Joce-Rent-Art-712916789079559.
Coupled with Rent’s artwork display will be live performances by Man'DANCE, Mrs.Paintbrush, and Cutups & KEEB$. The show begins at 9pm, for guests ages 21 and above.
Food from Spirit’s kitchen will be available for purchase until 1:00am, and the bar will be open until 2:00am. Spirit First Fridays are made possible with support from Straub Beer. Straub Lagers will be available for $3.00 until midnight.
