Forces of Nature: Color Our World

March 5, 2016

Beneficiary: Event Pros Take Action

With a hypnotic, prismatic visual of 78 individually hand-cut hexagons illuminating the upper floor of raw space in Bakery Square 2.0, chances were slim that anything else could possibly divert attentions.

Until a double team of body paint, tulle, and strategically placed rhinestones appeared.

“We're told they can come off by soaking, ripping, and not screaming too loud,” joked Ashley Young of Creative Juice Group.

With each moment unfolding as one seemingly endless crescendo, area event planners and designers unleashed their creative prowess for the Forces of Nature: Color Our World soiree on March 5, turning a blank canvas into an explosion of eye candy.

Under the serenade of an amplified violinist courtesy of Steven Vance, guests wove their way through vibrantly designed vignettes from Joe Mineo, Martin Potoczny of LUXE Creative, Shayla Hawkins, Sheila Weiner of The Event Group, and Tim Komen of TK Studio.

“I don't want to go home tonight,” admitted Joanna Huss.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
