It was an event designed to showcase the immense talent held within our city, and it did just that.
Kaleidoscope Houston 2016, presented by Pam Andino of Ubertina Productions, delivered art, music, fashion and dance in their three night presentation with a flowing, innovative display of artists, dancers, designers, filmmakers and musicians.
Based on three themes, Urbanity, Jet Set and Imaginarium, guests were treated to the height of Houston’s outstanding offerings in a comfortable, enthusiastically creative environment.
This all-inclusive promotion of Houston’s diverse offerings resulted in an incredible production. Imaginative runways, fresh visions and original music had the crowd heartily engaged.
