Performances by:

E. ∆ndrei
Eric Tempelaere also known as E. ∆ndrei’s sound can be characterized by his minimal, dark soul and RnB influences.

Darkly, an electronic/experimental act infused with enchanting vocal melodies, murky synths, and samples, will offer a unique and distinct sound and rare musical and visual experience.

ODD (Our Daily Dance) 
Our Daily Dance and The Kendall College of Art and Design dance crew will keep guests moving with a spectacular and high-energy set featuring a variety of dance styles.

Cheeky Strut
Cheeky Strut hair and make-up artists will move through the galleries pulling guests aside to create bold and glamorous fashion looks. Complimentary makeovers will transform guests from visitors into part of the art, creating a living, breathing exhibition
