Supervisor Mirkarimi's 3rd Friday Art Opening: Artful Aging

On Friday, January 19, 2007, Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi hosts the monthly Third Friday’s Art Reception in his City Hall office, Room 282. AgeSong, in conjunction with Supervisor Ross Mikarmini, invites the public to enjoy this FREE event which presents the opening of an art exhibit of works by the residents of AgeSong, a senior community in Hayes Valley. The unique quilts handcrafted by 17 artists will be on display. The opening provides an opportunity to meet the artists and speak personally to them about their work.

This show will be dedicated to Harriet Tubman, an African American icon known as "Moses" to her people for her work with the Underground Railroad leading slaves out of bondage to the North. Ninety-nine years ago, in 1908, Harriet Tubman established the first home for the elderly and indigent blacks. Located in Auburn, New York, this has since become known as The Harriet Tubman Home. Her vision and concern for the elderly continues today in assisted living communities throughout the world and specifically in AgeSong’s Hayes Valley Care and Laguna Grove Care.

The magazine has a focus on personal experiences and political insights, and contains practical information like news, features, health columns, and resources related to the sex industry. $pread builds community in the sex trade by featuring the honest and diverse perspectives of those who know it best: the women and men who work within this sensationalized, highly stereotyped industry.

ART LOUNGE 2007: Calling artists, scientists and environmentalists!
Join us for a reception at Burning Man HQ Friday, Jan 26 5-8pm,
1900 3rd St, 2nd Floor ( 16th and Mariposa) San Francisco, 94158


ART LOUNGE 2007: Calling artists, scientists and environmentalists!
Join us for a reception at Burning Man HQ Friday, January 26th from 5-8pm
1900 3rd St, 2nd Floor (between 16th and Mariposa) San Francisco.

Purpose: To bring artists, scientists and eco-heros of various shapes and
sizes together in a social atmosphere with the Burning Man staff, to
honor their
contributions and inspire cross pollination in the year ahead as we
figure out exactly
what "Green Man" means to us!

Taking "green" into consideration means thinking about the effect each of
your decisions has on the environment and choosing the least harmful/most
beneficial option possible. Specific things to take into consideration
include materials being used, energy consumed, and waste produced. We
saying let's NOT burn art and we don't wish to dillute the intensity of the
creative expression at Burning Man. But we do want to inspire a sense of
ownership of the entire creative process from creation to destruction and
back in ways that inspire social change on and off the playa and
lead the way to new forms and concepts of art making.

Are you wondering how to power your art installation using alternative
Do you have knowledge of a new or green technology that might be of
to artists?

Please join Burning Man staff and volunteers for a wine and cheese
honoring artists, scientists, and members of our newly formed "Greening The
Burn Group" and let's see what conversations spark in the year ahead!
Members of the Art Dept and other Burning Man staff will also be on hand to
discuss the overall art process with you and see what's on your mind!

Please RSVP to special-events [at] if you will attend.

Hope to see many of you there!
