Beer for art


The Details

Beer Fest
July 10, 4-10 p.m., $20
Arts Factory
107 E. Charleston Blvd.

Amid dried-up funding and a nutty economy, the nonprofit Contemporary Arts Center is hosting a summer fundraiser to keep its doors open and programming in check. The all-you-can-drink "Beer Fest" features specialty beers from local distributors and microbreweries Joseph James Brewing Company, Southern Wine and Spirits, Wirtz Beverage Nevada and Tenaya Creek Brewery—and a live performance by new-wavey locals Close to Modern. Your $20 admission fee goes toward another year of performance art, contemporary exhibits, cutting-edge experimental shows and complex installations from local, national and international artists. Look for the 5-foot beer tap carved from Styrofoam by artist Jesse Smigel in the CAC's front window.
