Who's ready for the Contemporary's Art Party?

The Atlanta Contemporary Art Center (the Contemporary) is gearing up for it's biggest event of the summer — Art Party. This year, the Contemporary is throwing down old-school style with an outrageous block party. On Sat., Aug. 29, the Contemporary's campus and Means Street will be taken over with food from local restaurants, on-site bars, an army of DJ's, several art exhibits, and a couple other surprises. 
?
? For those of you who like to look at art while you party, the fall exhibitions of http://www.johnriepenhoff.com/John Riepenhoff, Marlon Mullen, and Aleksandra Domanović will be opening at  the event. Party-goers can also swing by the Studio Artist courtyard and chat it up with some of the Contemporary's Studio Artists such as Sarah Emerson, Jane Garver, and Kojo Griffin.
?
? Is there anything that screams "old-school" more than a roller-rink with a disco ball? Yeah, we didn't think so either. Visitors will be able to check out skates (and buy some socks if needed) and then hit the floor. The Atlanta Rollergirlshttp://www.atlantarollergirls.com/ will also be there for photo opportunities and perhaps to  teach you a few moves.  DJ Ree De La Vega will playing all the summer hits so you can get your Roll Bounce on. 
?
? For the main musical event, Montreal-based musician NARCY will be performing. Considered a pioneer of the Arab hip-hop movement, NARCY has performed on stages across the globe, appearing at major film and music festivals from Dubai to Melbourne. Attendees will get to finish out the night dancing on the main stage to a special music set set created by NARCY and DJ and producer Sandhill.
?
? While this amazing event is not free, ticket sales for Art Party go towards supporting the Contemporary's exhibitions, public programs, and Studio Artist program. This year, ticket sales will also be put towards the Contemporary's new free admission policy. To buy tickets, click here
