St. Louis-based Evntiv, offered a bold design for Opera Theater of St. Louis’s 40th Anniversary Gala appropriately titled Avante-garde! The event took place at a private estate in Town & Country, Missouri on a massive outdoor pavilion.
To bring the Avant-garde theme to life, the Evntiv team used bold, black and white linens mixed with bright pops of canary yellow and hot magenta tones. These colors were the perfect contrast to the natural, green surroundings.
The cornerstone of the design was a massive 36ft long by 20ft wide ceiling treatment comprised of approximately 14,000 strands of iridescent white fabric. The fabric strands were hand ripped to cause imperfections and crinkling and then attached one at a time to the ceiling of the pavilion. After all the strands were hung, a team of designers hand cut a “wave” shape into the fabric strands. The result was a dramatic, abstract chandelier effect.
Evntiv was responsible for the concept, creative design, audio, lighting, decor and event staffing for the Avante-garde! Gala.
Evntiv’s partnership continues with the City of Alton as Mayor Brant Walker announced the fourth major event at Liberty Bank Alton Amphitheater for the 2015 season.
“We are excited to announce that Lynyrd Skynyrd will be coming to Liberty Bank Alton Amphitheater on Friday September 4, 2015,” said Mayor Walker. “This iconic band practically defined the music genre of Southern Rock.”
With a catalog of over 60 albums, sales beyond 30 million worldwide and their beloved classic American rock anthem “Sweet Home Alabama” having sold over two million ringtones, Rock & Roll Hall of Famers Lynyrd Skynyrd remain a cultural icon that appeals to multiple generations.
“The people of Alton and the surrounding counties have proven there is a demand for bigger concerts at the amphitheater. We anticipate this concert to sell out, so I hope fans of Lynyrd Skynyrd act quickly to buy tickets,” said Mayor Walker. “I can’t think of a better way to kick off Labor Day weekend!
