4am Project

Feel like getting up early and taking some pictures this weekend? How about staying up late drinking and getting avant garde? Either way, there’s a photo contest coming up with your name on it. The 4AM Project is soliciting for good images taken anywhere in the world very late Saturday or very early Sunday, depending on how you want to look at it. Grab some inspirational beverages, a couple friends, and make this city look distinguished and classy, or at least as best as possible at 4am.

For those of you who got crazy the past two years at Le Flash in Castleberry Hill, prepare to rejuvenate your cerebral senses with Flux. The show, which has served as a somewhat unofficial kickoff for ACP,  is tough to put into words but if you’re a fan of art + photography + taking it to the streets, then this is the shindig for you.

The birthing begins at 8pm and officially concludes at 2am. It should be a good time and those in search of refreshment need look no farther than No Mas and our favorite watering hole, Elliot Street Pub. You can also check out a video or two showing the making of Flux projects. We’ll see you there.
