In the heart of Mexicantown, Michigan I enjoyed one of the most interesting art shows ever: The Slideluck Potshow.
The idea behind the Slideluck Potshow combines an old-school slideshow gathering with a potluck dinner, but it's totally revamped for a twenty-something crowd. You get that nostalgic feeling of sharing your photos with friends mixed with cutting-edge artistic endeavors. The slideshow consists of several artists, where each power-point slideshow presentation is about five minutes long. One of the best things about the show is how each artist uses music to amplify their images and create a mood for their work.
The Slideluck Potshow is touring all over the U.S. so check out their website and submit your photos. And who knows, maybe someone could blog about how much fun they had viewing your stuff.
[Hat tip to Stephen McGee for helping to bring the show to Detroit and for the invite.]
