SHINE In the Dark! T-Shirt Sale and Black Light Dance Party

29 Nov 2019

Eyelevel Artist Run Centre & Bookstore is excited to announce our upcoming winter fundraiser Shine in the Dark! 

To preorder one of our specially commissioned t-shirts, visit https://www.eri8.art/tshirt-sale-fundraiser

Shine in the Dark is a t-shirt sale and blacklight dance party celebrating Eyelevel’s return to Gottingen Street and the many fabulous local artists supported by this organization over the years. Eyelevel has commissioned 200 t-shirts from beloved local artists, half of the proceeds from each shirt sold will be paid to the artist, and half will go towards continuing Eyelevel’s programming and developing our new space.

Join us on November 29th from 8:00-late to warm our new home with a speakeasy-style dance party at 2177B Gottingen Street (right next door to Radstorm). The night will include the musical stylings of Juicy Lippard (Kate Walchuck), Israel Ekenam and Go Hard Richter (Andrew Neville) on the top floor with a black-light dance party so you can show off your gorgeous new shirt, a low-key space with snacks and by-donation drinks on the main floor, and of course t-shirts for sale!

An online t-shirt pre-sale will begin on November 15th! Check out our Instagram at @eyelevel_arc to nab one of these one-of-a-kind and limited edition creations. Shirts sized from S - XXXL on a plain-white base, $35. Treat yourself to a snazzy new addition to your wardrobe, hang one on your wall or give them as a unique holiday gift!
