Quest @ CAF Forum Lounge

On July 5th, artists Patrick Melroy, Samantha Fretwell, and Katy McCarthy from the Uppur Bunk Collaborative Art Space orchestrated an experimental performance that humorously merged the art world with the digital gaming world. At CAF, guests wandered through an interactive art experience progressing through the show by gathering tokens and talismans along their journey to the upper echelons of the art world. Big thanks to the brave Heather Jeno Silva at CAF for inviting us in to perform as a part of the Forum Lounge series and to CAF for having us. Thanks to Brett Harrison and Sophie Leddick for all their assistance. Photos below by Troy David and Robert Redfield( (Troy David Photo). Endless thank-yous to our crew of performers, you were all fabulous.
