March is notorious for Mardi Gras—the ritual where individuals indulge in rich, fatty, foods, and other pleasures before the fasting of Lent. But this month, the Teen Editorial Staff is acknowledging another holiday, to feed our unfathomable desire to see art. Enter, Arty Gras. This TeenTix-wide celebration of the arts scene starts right here. Right now.
We have curated eight shows that encapsulate the many mediums of art. From MoPOP’s Sound Off! Finals, “FP2: Beats of Rage” at the Grand Illusion Cinema, to Hugo House’s Literary Series—your craving for art, in all its forms, will be satisfied. These heavenly picks will make you want to smack your lips, and come back for more—be it the Moisture Festival or Boom Bap at Comedy Sportz, there is little wrong with giving free rein to your cravings for art.
But, if you'd rather take some time to reflect on yourself, or the human condition, then try Caught at the Intiman Theatre, American Junkie at Book-It Repertory Theatre, or On the Boards’ [lavender]: a self portrait. Whatever you choose, Arty Gras is the perfect time for you to binge-support your local arts scene, to fuel your desires, or just to reflect. Let the good times roll.
