BAD WOMAN SOS BENEFIT SHOW, MONDAY, APRIL 1, 7-9 PM

Overnight Projects invites you to an evening of experimental music Monday, April 1 from 7-9 PM at Burlington City Arts, 135 Church Street in Burlington, Vermont. 

Artists Gahlord Dewald, Wren Kitz, and Throat of the Loon are coming together to help us raise money for the upcoming exhibition Katya Grokhovsky: Privately Owned.

Help us bring NYC-based installation & performance artist Katya Grokhovsky to Burlington in May. We have to date raised $400 and need to raise an additional $1,100 to meet our exhibition budget. All funds will go toward the artist's stipend and to transporting artist's work from NYC. There are three ways both local and out-of-town folks can help: 

1. Buy a limited edition Bad Woman t-shirt designed by Katya Grokhovsky for $20 here.
2. Give what you can at the show for an evening of experiential and exploratory sounds by an incredible group of artists. 
3. Make a tax-deductible donation through our fiscal sponsor, the BCA Foundation here.

Part of Overnight Projects' mission is to create new connections and opportunities for Vermont artists and expand our community by working with artist and curators from out of town. As a volunteer-run, non-profit organization, we are asking for the support of our community to continue meeting this goal.
