BKE and Jonn Marc proudly presents Winter Ice Soiree – a performance art installation at L2 Lounge on Friday, February 26th, at 7 p.m. This event is co-hosted by Herlife Magazine. This is a performance art piece that uses sculpture, painting and live models being painted. Everything will be white like a winter-ice wonderland, two models will be laying on warm fur throws. These models will be painted during the performance. A ballerina (from Washington Ballet) will dance on the canvas following a path of paint as the models are painted. Once the body painting is complete the models will stand up and walk around for a photo opportunity. The artist, Jonn Marc, will continue to paint the canvas floor and the tree, adding color to the winter scrape.
