On Saturday, May 26th, local artists Samantha Rueter and Briahna Wenke will perform a live body art performance piece, “Things They Carry,” at the Grand Bohemian Hotel's art gallery. The event is being held on the Spoleto Festival USA's opening night and begins at 5 pm.
The performance will include five live models - male and female - to act as painted living pictures, an auction for two large paintings at 7:30 pm, and more. You can view a teaser video clip for the event below.
Here's how the artists describe the event: "We all have stories. Layers. Circumstances that are written for us without our permission. These human form creations represent a shift in the story. Recognizing it in one another and standing together, in solidarity, to heal."
