Saturday, September 8th: Pearly’s Beauty Shop Pop-Up Salon & Party

Pearly’s Beauty Shop
25-25 44th Dr., Queens
$20 in advance

Join us for an evening of celebration and artistic pampering from head to toe. Pearly’s Beauty Shop is a full service unisex salon and party all in one. Artists will do you up and you will dance it out.

How it works: You pick an option from our menu of salon services. Nails done by a painter? Hair diorama by a sculptor? Makeup by a conceptual artist? Performance artist paraffin dip? No matter your desire, one of our artists will attend to your every need.

Mickalene Thomas (whose solo exhibition ‘Origin of the Universe’ opens at the Brooklyn Museum September 28) will be doing body painting:

Look and be looked: You’ll find our salon stations throughout the party, with revelry all around. DJ’s Dirty Finger, Manhate, and 3 Kings International Sound will make your body move and your fresh coat of glam shine while you explore indoor and outdoor dance parties, music, installations and performances by Roofeeo, Shenandoah Davis, Lady Circus’ Anya Sapozhnikova, Audra Pace, Yea, Well, Whatever, and more- all situated in a stunning visual landscape.

The party benefits the re-envisioning of a formerly abandoned church to become a community resource and an arts destination.
