ARTrageous, an art-filled family show described by Chicago Tribune as “Picasso meets Blue Man Group,” comes to the Lenfest Center at Washington and Lee University on April 28 at 7:30 p.m. Audience members should prepare to join in on the high-energy, heart-pounding action as the arts and music collide on the Keller Theatre stage.

Tickets are required and can be purchased online at https://my.wlu.edu/lenfest-center/artrageous or by calling the Lenfest box office at 540-458-8000. Box office hours are Tuesday-Friday, 9 a.m.-4 p.m., and it will also be open one hour before the performance.

The doors to the event open at 7 p.m., and the public is invited to come early and to bring a t-shirt or cap to the edge of the stage to get it custom “splattered” by an ARTrageous artist in its one-of-a-kind creation lab.

During the performance, artists will form visual art pieces using hands, brushes and other objects, making lines and shapes on giant canvasses. At the same time, audience members are invited to guess what each painting will become. A unique visual journey packed with artists, musicians, singers and dancers, the performance will pay tribute to various art forms, pop icons and musical genres.

The one-of-a-kind show combines live performance painting with original and classic music and remarkable vocals that will have spectators dancing as the ARTrageous artists’ race to finish their masterpieces before the last note.

The family-oriented show is driven by the underlying message that arts are an integral and valuable part of human existence. ARTrageous displays its custom artworks in private and public collections worldwide.
