Disco Dance Bar

MAAG, McMurdo Alternative Art Gallery, is an annual party that has been held in the Carp Shop for the last two years. We totally transform the shop into an art space for all different kinds of art. People are encouraged to let their creative side come out and do whatever they want, however they want. There is some wild and crazy stuff.

The Disco Dance Bar extravaganza.

Galen and I built an entire room onto the exterior deck of the shop. We filled it with a bar, a mirror ball, black lights, colored lights, fans, a strobe light, day-glo colors. We served a concoction of champagne, vodka and tonic water. Tonic water contains quinine which glows under black light. It was a fun, fun, fun time. I left at 11:30., the Disco Dance Bar was hopping till four in the morning with disco and funk music blasting away.

Day-Glo bar

The exterior space in the light of day that was turned into the Disco Dance Bar. It was completely taken apart in two hours.

What's a Disco Dance Bar without a pair of zebra skin platform shoes?

The bowling alley building is almost completely torn down, but these bowling balls will live on in Sean's work
