Put your t-shirts on and get your hoses out. March 15th, the Art F City team will bring Spring Break and all its excess to New York for its annual spring benefit, this year honoring Carol Cole. Prepare for a night of utter mayhem.

And when we say mayhem, we mean it! You won’t believe the line-up of events—and we’re just getting started! Take a look.

  • “Best Man-Boobs of the Art World” wet t-shirt contest
  • Roller disco artists with limbo bars
  • More drinks than at the MTV Beach House!
  • Eat hot dogs! Tacos! Bananas!
  • Tropical artwork, performance-artists-gone-wild, and screenings from Ryan Trecartin and more
  • Bid on our Paddle8 auction with art by artists such as Michelle Grabner, Carrie Moyer and Zoe Crosher.
  • Two options for tickets: seating at artist-designed “Private Islands” (with take-home artwork!) and slightly-less-VIP “Basic Beaches”!

Plus we’ll present our annual awards, this year themed Spring Break. What’s on the line?

Your tits. We’ve assembled a team of judges to evaluate the art world’s finest man boobs. The winner takes home a limited edition t-shirt.

Most importantly, we honor Carol Cole, whose work as an artist, feminist, collector, and philanthropist deserves all the lauding these city residents can give her. She works tirelessly to promote the art of women, the art of the under-recognized, and the art of North Carolina’s artists. She is known amongst her peers as a collector and sculptor of breasts. We can’t think of someone who has nurtured the arts more.

So, join us at Otto’s Shrunken Head, Downtown’s premier Tiki Bar, to honor this fine artist, and also, to get our shirts wet. It’ll be the night you never forget.
