Groundbreaking Party!

We're throwing a rager on September 12th to celebrate the purchase of our building; more details after the jump!

On August 23rd, Verge Center for the Arts closed escrow on its building at 625 S Street. The same building that currently houses 32 resident artists, has hosted numerous art installations, film screenings, lectures, and exhibitions, the same building which has provided you with hours of enjoyment, whether through games of art mini-golf and wiffle ball, or through dance parties and interactive art experiences.

What does VERGE OWNING VERGE mean to you? It means that in six short months, we'll be back in business with a FULLY OPERATIONAL, OPEN TO THE PUBLIC WITH NORMAL-BUSINESS-HOURS ART CENTER!!! That's right - exhibitions, classes, lectures, art studios, kids programming, adult programming, and of course, more dance parties, will be both consistent and frequent. 

Be sure to come to Verge on Thursday, September 12th, to help us blow the doors off this joint before we go dark for six months of construction! This party will also be the kick off to CAST (http://ccasac.org/cast/), which begins on Saturday. We'll have Ruhstaller beer, food trucks provided by SactoMoFo, DJs Scott Soriano and Flower Vato, games and dancing.

WHEN: Thursday, September 12th, 5:30pm - 10pm
WHERE: 625 S Street (corner of 7th and S)
ADMISSION: $7 ($2 goes towards supporting CAST)

MARK YOUR CALENDARS AND WE'LL SEE YOU SEPTEMBER 12th!
