Not many First Thursday exhibits are quite like what local artist Tony Caprai is planning. A resident artist in BoDo's Mercantile Building, Caprai is hosting an art showing and reception July 2, to show off his "Bright Lights" series of paintings depicting areas of Boise at night.
He's running a little experiment during his reception, too--Caprai will set up his stereo and plans to let just about anyone plug in their smartphone and play a song for a little "iPhone DJ dance party."
"If you have a good song you want to play, you'll be next in line," Caprai said. "I just want to provide a fun atmosphere for people, a place where they want to hang out for the night and check out some artwork."
Beer and wine will be provided for the 21-plus crowd, and Caprai would like to extend an invitation to "anyone and everyone." His show takes place in Suite 182 of the Mercantile Building at 404 S. Eighth St.
