We’ve Lost Count

Junkyard Casserole (descendent of  Junk-a-thon) happened once again at 2608 Rogers Ave., this time from noon til midnight.

For the umpteenth time, it was an ecstatic confluence if friends, friendly strangers, strange art and fun junk.  Oh yeah, it was hot.  But there was an a.c./indoors section of the department store.

Here are some of the other departments:

Itinerary for E.A.S.T.

Saturday, November 13th
Forecast: sunny and cool (60’s)

At our plaza – stop#129, 2608 Rogers Ave. – there will be a bountiful display of art to look at, including:
* Science Bear Arcade:  Palfloat brand homemade gifts and souvenirs, plus framed art by Chad Hopper for your walls.
* Bargain prices on fine art collage plus cheap but delightful prints by myself.
* A million photos by Fernando Flores hung on a crazy fence.
* Kevin Pope art.
AND…
* The “Permanent Collection” — that is, the combined 2608B household art collection, featuring 30 different artists, displayed for your discovering pleasure inside our home.  You will be met at the door by Chips the dog, who likes you but will bark until you offer him a palm to sniff.

Also, there is a DIY sculpture garden!!

Throughout the day, I will be alternating between “keepin it real” and performing a piece entitled “Self Employment”.  This performance piece will include doing the work of organizing materials and people for the creation of a Social Experiment/Employment Agency/Recycling Center/Sovereign Nation which culminates on Day 4.  If you are interested in being a participant, ask about Jobs.

As for treats, there will probably just be some cider.  (Unless someone gets motivated to make popcorn balls or soup.)

Sunday, November 14th
Forecast: cold and rainy

Much of the Day 1 displays will have to turn inside out so as to not be ruined by rain.  This makes for some interesting challenges.  Maybe we’ll get around to the soup on this day.  I think some music would be in order as well.  I can still conduct job interviews, too!
