DR. SKETCHY THURSDAY, JULY 31, 7PM
Hey there art monkeys,
Sorry once again to drag this out to the (very!) last minute, but strange and cool things have been transpiring here at DS HQ.
Revolva, who's modeled with her hula hoop for us before, is bringing some of her hooping friends to town:
"Part of the reason I'm coming back is to take part in World Hoop Day Detroit -- an August 8 charity event where a bunch of the Detroit Hoopers are giving away hoops to inner city kids and hosting a big hula hooping party at The Temple of the American Dream (in old Redford). It's in conjunction with Blight Busters, Detroit Dream Project and the non-profit SPARC. Here's the myspace page for the event:
So we've had a change of plans - she and her pals will be modeling and hooping for us Thursday with proceeds going to the charities! It meant some rescheduling with Blick's in Dearborn, but it's way worth it. Trouble is, the venue is still TBA!! So here's the deal:
• We will either be at the THC coffeehouse on Jos. Campau in Hamtramck (just a few doors south of the Belmont)
• We will be at a gallery space hosted by the Contemporary Art Institiute of Detroit in the Russell Industrial complex, at Clay & the I-75 service drive on the outskirts of Hamtramck (still waiting for this to get confirmed, but it'd be a greta idea if it works...)
I will post and email you all again as soon as things get firmed up for sure. I know this is nuts but I think it'll be worth the craziness in the end! Thanks for your patience, stay tuned everyone!
