July. FOM Series. Main Street Columbia SC. What do all of these have in common? Heat, that’s right! The hottest series in town continues through the heat of the summer with a bevy of options for your pleasure.
Indoor: First and foremost, we are breaking out of our box with the July artist, photographer Jenna Sach, who is bringing “Box” to the walls of FOM. You may have seen a couple of elements of this show at this year’s What’s Love event at 701, but this time you get to see the whole concept in its entirety. Jenna will be sharing her vision of how sexuality is often put in a box, but doesn’t need to be. Her transcendental style reveals the stunning beauty of women from outside the box of societal stereotypes. She graduated from the University of South Carolina with a BA in Experimental Psychology with a minor in Studio Art focused in Photography. And, don‘t forget that Gervais &Vine will be providing wine for the evening.
Outdoor: It seems as though we have put together a small sideshow of entertainment for you! We will have fire spinning and fire eating by Fire in Motion, hooping by Luna Trix Hooping, some good old-fashioned “bed of nails” and “walking on glass” by James “Wild Man” Raley, and tied together by Ringmaster, Nick “Danger” Dunn and the sounds of DJ Deft Key. We’ll feature a multimedia presentation by Kendal Turner (spoken word poet), Chris Carney (fire spinner), and Guy Lugenbell (DJ). Workshop Theatre will premiere their new play “Cinderella”. And, I am hearing a rumor that there might be some 4th of July antics lighting up Main Street as well!
