We are no longer in our twenties, but that shouldn’t stop us from acting like it.
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.
Keyatta Mincey brings a diverse background of over 20 years in the foodservice industry that melds hotel expertise with fine dining proficiency and the fast pace of dance clubs. After years of walking the runway, and gracing covers, Mincey switched her focus to bartending and found and an amazing bond between herself and the drinks that she was making. “Talking to people is what I love most about bartending, and it’s how I perfect my ideas,” says Mincey. “I love to create, so I take the time to talk to guests, find out how they’re feeling and build a relationship, so I can craft truly signature cocktails.” These days you can find Mincey partnering with some of the county’s most influential spirit brands, to bring her message of creating picture-perfect cocktails to the masses. “For me, it’s not just about the drink,” Mincey explains. “It’s about talking to people, actually listening to what they like, and making them apart of the process when creating their cocktail.”
