Welcome to BAM! BrewArt Month.
A month-long artist showcase that is hosted throughout the City of Columbus. Hosted by numinous breweries, restaurants, distilleries, and event locations. WhitePHOENIXarts networks and partners with local businesses to welcome and showcase artistic talents.
BAM! BrewArt Month is a celebration of the arts, fashion, photography, music, and so much more here in the Columbus area. Hosting upwards of 50 to 60 artists throughout showcase.
Each hosting location gets its day to feature a set group of these artists. Usually, the hosting location will exhibit between 5 to 15 artists, depending on the location's space.
Which means that each showcase is unique to the established space. No two shows are the same! This is an amazing way to support the local artistic community and to help promote your brand to a different clientele. The best part is that you don’t have to organize the event.
WhitePHOENIXarts does all the hard work. You just need to tell us what day you can host the showcase and how many artists you want to attend!
Whom have we worked with?
In the past, we have worked with local breweries like Endeavor, Elevator, Pretentious Barrel House, Land Grant, Platform, North High, and Seventh Son Brewing Co.
BAM! was started back in June 2019. It was created to expand and grow the artistic presence within our city. We have a large artistic community, but they feel very underrepresented and known. Many of our partners in the past want to support the artistic community more but their space is limited. And no one wants to take on the responsibility and liability of hanging artists work up on their walls. This is where WhitePHOENIXarts comes in to play.
How Does BAM! Work And Who Does It Support?
WhitePHOENIXarts works with your locations event coordinators and management to set a day you want to host the showcase. Then we provide you a list of artists that you would like to showcase. We select a group of artists that can showcase on your assigned day. You get to choose which artists you want to showcase that best matches your brand.
We do not showcase any artist who produces copywritten materials. All entries must be original to the artist. Meaning you won’t see any characters belonging to pop-cutler, anime, cartoons, or other similar items. We are not about celebrating coping ideas. WhitePHOENIXarts want to celebrate the unique ideas that our artists have and want to share with our community.
During the event, WhitePHOENIXarts will supply display boards for the artists to hang their work. We do not let the artists hang their pieces on the walls of the hosting location. We supervise the set-up and breakdown of the showcase. Each show usually lasts between 4 and 6 hours. Our main showcasing days are on Fridays Evening (6 pm to 10 pm), Saturday (2 pm to 6 pm), and Sunday (11 am to 3 pm). We do host during the week. We are open for Tuesday and Wednesday showcases but have shown low interest by the public these days, but this year might change.
For our larger locations, we will be hosting more artists. Along with Paint and Sip classes. This is a promotional event and WhitePHOENIXarts will handle most of the marking for the event. We ask that you help support the Facebook event page and marking within your establishment.
At the end of the month, we are planning on hosting a larger event at a single location. This would be like a tradeshow, festival, and art walk all wrapped into one event. We welcome our hosting location to set-up booths at the final location. We are currently working out those details now. WhitePHOENIXarts will provide more information on this soon.
When Does BAM! Take Place?
We are planning on hosting these events during May and October 2020. Preparation is key and we want to lock in dates as soon as possible.
May is our spring/summer showcase. October is our Halloween month, fall and winter showcase.
In May we heavily focus on the visual arts, fine arts, contemporary, fashion, and photography.
In May we would like to have 10 to 15 hosting locations for this event.
In October we are focusing on Halloween and the Holidays! We want to celebrate Halloween all month long! Costume contests for children, families, and after-hours adult. Along with fashion showcases, stage performances, and the arts. Our Artists will create pieces focused on the seasons, fashion and costume design, and so much more. We want to make a month-long celebration to blow other Columbus events out of the water.
This October showcase will feature 7 to 15 hosting locations. Each hosting location shall have its own Halloween theme. To be voted on by the collaborative hosts.
With Halloween happening on a Saturday this year we want to make an event worth remembering. Columbus has had some disappointing larger Halloween events and we want to change that. We want to work with you, CCAD, ROY G BIV, 400 West Rich Studio, and other partners to make an event worth remembering!
