The Spring For The Mission Spring Equinox Fundraiser raises funds for The Mission for Temporal Art — “a beautiful old 1912 Methodist church building in historic downtown Marshall,” according to a press release. “Proprietors Claire Elizabeth Barratt and David Linton share a vision for the space to present time-based art in the form of contemporary multi-media, new media, music, dance, spoken-word performance and installation.” Barratt’s project, Cilla Vee Life Arts “provides a structured ‘Open Floor’ where dancers and musicians mingle and improvise together” during an open house from 2-6 p.m. At 8 p.m., a concert features music by Ahleuchatistas, Mark Hosler, Meghan Mulhearn and Xambuca with an audio/visual performance by David Linton. Visitors invited to drop in for refreshments. Donations are encouraged. Learn about the MTA Indiegogo fundraiser “Help Us Launch The Mission” here.
