    Chocolates & Heart- Catalyst Arts
















    Last night Catalyst Arts produced a small elegant Eventertainment Package for a private party of a prestigious medical group in Palo Alto.

    Guests posed in our Become the Art Photo Studio and especially loved the Big Love heArt Frame!
    The resulting photos are very fun and perfect for the Valentines Holiday.

    As a special surprise element, they also booked 2 of Catalyst Arts Signature ‘Tray Ladies’ in a vintage rouge hostess type look to go around serving local organic chocolates to the guests.

    Circus Stilt Walkers at ISES Gala in SF

    On July 10th, Catalyst Arts joined dozens of performers and caterers for the annual ISES Gala at SF Old Mint. For those who don’t know – ISES is the International Special Event Society, which is the association for special event professionals, so of course, we were excited, not only to show off our beautiful circus-themed stilt walkers and serving skirts, but also to debut a special new Signature offering: our unique Become the Art cart!

    Become the Art Cart is an interactive mobile photo opportunity suitable for any event. That night, the cart was particularly popular amongst the ISES crowd, because unlike most stationary photo booths, this one wheeled right up to people. Sporting a nice golden frame and a attended by a pro photographer (in this case Gustavo Fernandez) and a friendly costumed attendant.  The Become the Art Cart allowed guests to choose from a variety of custom-made props- from the ever-so popular mustaches on sticks to the cute circus hats and boas. After a click and flash, the playful experience becomes a very unique photo gallery to bring back memories well after the event is over.

    For the second half of the event, we collaborated with The Other Woman, an event catering and planning service. Their delicious treats settled nicely on our Sweet Cakes Serving Skirt. At first people weren’t sure if the desserts were for display only – but after a little encouragement, anyone who had a sweet tooth eagerly snatched a snack to taste.

    All in all, this event was a huge success and milestone for Catalyst Arts. We were able to get our name out there with event planners, made friends with talented performers, and debuted our brand new Become the Art cart, which was so enthusiastically received. Now we can’t wait to get the cart to it’s next special booking — maybe somewhere near you?

    And in March, Audette will be toting the heArt onto an airplane and heading to Las Vegas for The Face and Body Paint Convention. One night she will be framing the face painters and their creations.
