Join UICA for OddBall: Metal, Presented by Founders Brewing Co.
Dress in metal - whatever that may mean to you, whatever form that takes, however you’re inspired - and enjoy a cocktail hour and seated dinner featuring fine food and drink. The highly anticipated annual gala welcomes art enthusiasts, emerging and established creatives, and visionary supporters for a night of immersive entertainment.
This year, the revelatory event marks the official opening of UICA's Autumn Exhibition Series featuring Kennedy Yanko: Before Words, Mark Rumsey: Memory Map: Roof Line - State Street, and Larry Cook: On the Scene. This event is the city’s premier contemporary arts fundraiser. Event proceeds support UICA’s exhibitions, films, and programming year-round.
We’ve Brought Together an Eclectic and Odd Lineup
Enjoy a uniquely odd lineup of performances including steel drums by Greg Secor, metal thrashing by Hundo, and electro-synth sounds and vocals by Primer.
Thank You for Your Support
