Drink. Dance. Discuss.
Every Third Thursday - Atlanta Contemporary presents Thirsty Thursday, a cocktail throw-down with our Mixologist-in-Residence. Enjoy music by local DJ - Mike Stasny.
Mike Stasny is an installation artist, performance artist, and sculptor from the midwest currently working out of Atlanta. He primarily works with raw building materials and broken furniture converting them into “creatures” inspired by natural history museums, sci-fi, and his grandfather - an eccentric taxidermist whom let Mike play in his basement with numerous dead things. His most notorious work to date is “what what in the butt” - a youtube viral video that conflates homosexuality, blackness, and religion into an absurd / escapist cartoon like universe. On occasion, he provides “MUSIC YOU NEED” for art related events.
