Q Ball 2015
QUAT'Z ARTS Q BALL
March 7, 2015
Energy Innovation Center
What color is your dream?
You know Quantum’s outside-the-box artists love a party. Join us to riff on the famous surrealist parties of 20th century Paris celebrating the arts of painting, sculpture, architecture, and printmaking.
Clocks will melt, nudes will descend staircases, tuning forks will be of satin, and no pipe will be a pipe, as we celebrate the breadth, impact, and diversity of Pittsburgh’s scene... and raise money for one of its enfant terribles.
VIP TICKETS: $175 Join our VIPs at 7pm for an evening catered by E2.
Special entertainment by C Street Brass, and the collaborative work of a team of visual and theater artists.
DANCE PARTY TICKETS: $35 in advance ($40 at the door)
Arrive fashionably late for the 9pm dance party with Nate da Phat Barber, drinks, and desserts.
WHAT TO WEAR: Transparent, with melting timepiece accessories. If shy: live lobsters.

AMERICA’S NEWEST PLAYS IN WEST VIRGINIA’S OLDEST TOWN
Idyllic Civil War-era Shepherdstown is located on the Potomac River in West Virginia’s Eastern Panhandle (an easy 3-hour drive from Pittsburgh). The oldest town in the state, it is situated just minutes from Antietam National Battlefield; Harpers Ferry National Park, countless galleries and boutique shops; and is home to the Contemporary American Theater Festival- a month-long theater festival dedicated to producing world premiere American plays. The prize includes two five-show passes over three days, a two-night stay at the beautiful Bavarian Inn, breakfast and discussion with CATF Founder and Artistic Director Ed Herendeen (father of Quantum’s Stevie!), and dining at a quaint downtown restaurant.
