Wildest night of the year includes cocktails, food, music and fun fashions
Tickets are still available for JAZZOO 2010, this Saturday, September 25 from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. at Zoo Atlanta. The event will feature kiosks from more than 30 of Atlanta’s best restaurants, specialty cocktails at full-service open bars, and animal viewing until dusk. Live entertainment will include music from 80s cover band The Breakfast Club; Eddie’s Attic Acoustic Stage; MudCat; Sound Investment; and Andrew Brothers Dueling Pianos.
New for 2010 is the opportunity to view and vote on fashions evoked by Zoo Atlanta animals, created by designers from the world’s most comprehensive art and design university. During spring quarter 2010, students from SCAD’s Introduction to Fashion Classes were instructed to design 3-D garments inspired by animals at the Zoo. The students visited the Zoo where they photographed and observed the animals in their habitat. Using unconventional materials, the garments that will be featured at JAZZOO were designed using a variety of materials: balloons, feathers, rope, coffee filters, paper maché, and aluminum cans. This project is a great example of how SCAD students are able to master design challenges in the most creative and fascinating ways.
JAZZOO is an event where whimsical, animal-inspired attire is the norm, with extra encouragement this year: the wearer of the best “creative cocktail” costume will win a cruise for two. SIXTHMAN has donated a room on THE ROCK BOAT cruise (Carnival Inspiration) hosted by Sister Hazel.
Proceeds of JAZZOO 2010 will support Zoo Atlanta’s access programs that provide admission and field trips to disadvantaged children and schools. All-inclusive tickets are available now on jazzooatlanta.org.
