Pandora's Trunk
Bi-monthly arts & fashion showcase

Saturday June 30 2-7pm

free admission - live music - free drinks
Mina Dresden Gallery
312 Valencia @ 14th

*Pandora's Trunk Presents Versus* 
Take part in the eternal dualist battle between good and evil!

The audience will be the players in an all-encompassing game
exploding the binary notion of the dark and light sides of
life.  We will all join together in playful and earnest 
celebration of life beyond a black-and-white worldview,
playing with and against each other in a tipsy and joyful
rendition of humanity's battle with itself.  Artists from
all parts of the spectrum will present to you their work in 
paint, fabric, metal, wood, string, spit, and bubblegum.
Pick sides and put 'em up - talk the artists into selling
you their work and go home with a pocket-sized unique
souvenir of one little drunken corner of a revolution.  Each 
transaction will grant you a pass to win or lose in the name
of whichever side you are on.  Don't worry - drinks and
merriment are for winners and losers alike.

The art and fashion offerings will come in good and evil and 
all sizes, shapes and colors.  Look out for ties, scarves,
cowboy shirts, and jackets for boys and girls from Medium
Reality.  Miranda Caroligne will of course be there telling
you snips and secrets from her upcoming Reconstruction 
Clothing for Dummies manual, then making you drool over the
way that she does it herself. Bad Unkl Sista, Fatima, Rose
Pistola, Cotton Candie Stockings and more more more rounding
out the fashion plate with clothing and accessories for your 
most delirious opium dream.

Metallurge casting is coming to showcase astounding and
functional art-metal castings that you may have seen at
Maker Faire.  We are welcoming back sitar player John Arns,
and of course handmade gourmet chocolates for your eating 
pleasure!  Visit our website for a frequently updated roster
of artists with pictures and links.  Contact us to get involved.

To find LOTS OF VERY affordable, recycled bikes for Burning Man visit

is located at 610 4th Street in San Rafael and is open Tuesday - Friday 
noon - 6 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. Each year Trips
for Kids takes hundreds of inner-city kids from the Bay Area on guided
mountain bike adventures, many of whom have never been outside of their 
urban neighborhoods.  In 1999 Trips for Kids became a national program.
 There are now 51 chapters from coast to coast, with more in the works.
