LIQUID SOUL was one of the best times AM Radio has had in a while.  To be honest, the majority of our Live Art Murals are client based projects that seldom happen in DC and even when they do they aren’t events AM Radio is doing, so, for us, to execute LIQUID SOUL in DC for…well, us and to receive the kind of response we received was pretty gratifying.

Practically everything fell into place with attendees even arriving before 7pm.  From the Vitamin Water enhanced paints used by the artists, DJ 2-Tone Jones spinning rare grooves, a “flavors of DC” video shown featuring colorful portraits of DC area residents (AM Radio friends and family), and people taking full advantage of the Community Wall, LIQUID SOUL really took on a life of its own.

Big shout to everyone who came out, huge thanks to Vitamin Water for sharing our vision, Frank 151 and CityLife for the media support, the promo/pr hit squad (Kat, Akil, Tyrone, Cherisse, Alexis), Teri (Rosina Photography) for killing the photo shoots, Dax for the video, Alex, David, and Jeramie (The Fridge DC), and the AM Radio team (Gerald, BUCK!, Adra, PJ, Aniekan, 2-Tone, Wes, and Lance).

Really looking forward to this event – its one you don’t want to miss.  The illest thing about it is that this was conceived during a conversation Aniekan and I had 2-3 months ago:

Wednesday, Sept .1 at The Fridge DC, 7pm to 11pm, located in the rear alley of 516 8th St SE (across from Matchbox, Capitol Hill)

*Live painting: each live painting will be inspired by and painted using a flavor of Vitamin Water of the artist’s choosing

* Complimentary Vitamin Water

* Complimentary Cocktails courtesy of Bacardi

* Community Wall: attendees to express themselves through paint

*DJ 2-Tone Jones: hip-hop, soul, rare grooves

Concept

The synergies and analogies of symbolism between the soul of an artist and the medium they use are limitless but perhaps none best exemplifies that relationship better than paint from an artist’s brush to their canvas, It’s a fluid relationship (both literally and figuratively) where the paint is a conduit for the artist to express their thoughts, feelings, and spirit.

AM Radio artists, through the creation of live art murals, will present this symbolism by integrating an actual beverage into their paints. Each artist will select a flavor of Vitamin Water to both build a concept for their piece around as well as mix into their paints which will allow for a truly authentic experience.
