‘TAKING BACK KPFA - IMAGES FROM 1999'
SUNDAY, JANUARY 24TH, FROM 2-5
A SPECIAL EVENT FOR KPFA ONLY
The exhibit ‘TAKING BACK KPFA – IMAGES FROM 1999', currently on view at the Expressions Gallery until February 5 2010, is a significant exhibit of art, photos, prints, original posters, t-shirts, mugs and other memorabilia from 1999, commemorating the successful and historical resistance, by the staff and listener community, to the lockout at KPFA and the struggle to save the Pacifica Network. This battle saved KPFA and Pacifica and expanded the meaning free speech, community radio.
On Sunday, January 24, 2010, from 2:00-5:00pm, there will be a special event for the KPFA community. You will have the opportunity to view, purchase, and bid on items on display from 1999, commemorating the 10th anniversary of the struggle, which took place in the station, on the streets, at the board meetings, in the legislature, and in the courts. There will be silent auctions, with part of the proceeds donated to KPFA; refreshments, and short presentations from Barbara Lubin, Carol Spooner and Dennis Bernstein. The KPFA exhibit is part of a larger show titled ‘Past, Present, and Future’. The gallery is contributing 10% to KPFA of all sold art work, by the 30 other artists included in the show.
