Entrepreneurs within the arts will have the opportunity to engage with Valley artists during the one-night immersive event “No Vacancy.”

Herberger Arts and Design Entrepreneurship Students (HADES) designed the event as part of their work at ASU in entrepreneurial professional development through peer-to-peer mentoring, workshops and interaction.

“We value entrepreneurial thinking within the arts and hope that ‘No Vacancy’ will cultivate lasting relationships and opportunities for collaboration with local artists and members of the community,” said Nichole Perlberg, HADES president and a student studying performance and movement in ASU’s School of Film, Dance and Theatre.

HADES has partnered with local artists and with the FOUND:RE Hotel in downtown Phoenix to produce the event, which offers a unique opportunity to experience art with the artist present.  

The interactive event features local art and artists in the fields of dance, music, spoken word, contemporary fine arts and performance. Artists include Dom Root (Dominique Flagg), H/\rvey (Meghan Harvey), Desert Rain (Rain Locker), YNOT (Anthony DeNaro), CONDER/dance (Carley Conder) and KAYUN (Carol Wong). Each artist has curated his or her own show within the hotel space. Guests will be led on a tour in small groups through a sequence of spaces including a poolside studio, an outdoor pool area featuring performance and live music and three hotel rooms. 

“This will allow the community to experience a more comprehensive creative process that they would not typically find in a museum or art show,” said Emily Ruff, an undergraduate art history student and HADES member. “After touring, we invite guests to stay, ask questions and become acquainted with some of the astounding artistic talent that exists within the metropolitan Phoenix area.”

The hotel will be providing access to a full-service bar and invites guests to experience globally inspired cuisine at their restaurant, Match.

Other sponsors that helped HADES create and produce “No Vacancy” include Blackhawk Wealth Management, Galvinize and Nuebox.

“No Vacancy” will be from 6 to 10 p.m. Sunday, April 30, at the FOUND:RE Hotel. Tickets may be purchased online at eventbrite.com. For more information and biographies of participating artists, visit the “No Vacancy” Facebook and Instagram pages.

The FOUND:RE Hotel is located at 1100 N. Central Ave. in Phoenix with direct access from the light rail. Ridesharing or public transportation is encouraged as parking will be limited. The event is for age 18 and older.
