The world's premiere venue for outsider art is based right here in our fair city, showcasing the hotbed of independent style and future thinkers. This venue is the Intuit: and (mark your calendars now) this November 2 will be hosting the biggest event of the year: The Visionary Ball. We let you in on this morsel of culture because the hobnobbing of the arty folk is the goldmine of people watching. Last year for the visionary ball, everyone wore insane eyeglasses, and fready-deaky sunglasses. This year, they're upping the ante, asking attendees to do that freaky-deaky funky thing once again, only this time head to toe... in other words, leave the formal tux at home. [Racked Inbox]
