Jim Flora's Tenement K Print

Vacancies are available for a brand new Jim Flora art print, released just last week!

Titled Tenement K, this limited edition fine art print features residents who are bawdy, musical, criminal, and/or exhibitionistic. Doesn't matter if you're rowdy, serpentine, or headless — the landlord will rent you a room. If you were a mutant miscreant, you'd be home by now.

The previously unpublished and uncirculated work, which dates from the 1940s, is owned by a private collector who allowed them to have the work professionally photographed for print reproduction. Although the work is untitled, they have provisionally named it Tenement K to differentiate it from other untitled Jim Flora works.

Only forty prints of Tenement K were produced for this edition, so don't delay -- move in today !

The Center for Human Rights and Global Justice and the ACLU are delighted to bring together a panel of speakers with unparalleled experience depicting and reporting on the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, and the military commission trials taking place there.

They will also discuss the fates and stories of the detainees they have covered.

Join them at Furman Hall [ 245 Sullivan Street ] on the 9th Floor in the Lester Pollack Room. A valid ID and RSVP is required for admission to this event.

Ellen Forney Residency at Town Hall Seattle Tonight!

Have a creative itch you just can't scratch? Let Ellen Forney help you, tonight, Sunday, October 20th, at Town Hall in Seattle!

As Town Hall's fall season Artist in Residence, Ellen is joining forces with Cornish College theater professor Kathleen Collins to present "Scratch Night" -- "scratch" is as in "scratch paper," like an experiment, Ellen explains, not like a scratchy wool sweater!  

Together, Ellen and Kathleen will lead this dynamic, interactive workshop exploring the analogous skills and concepts that fuel their apparently disparate artistic mediums. “There’s so much acting in comics!” Forney says. “A cartoonist has to be the writer, director, and all the actors – just on paper.” No matter your preferred medium/practice — performance, literary, visual arts — breaching traditional boundaries enriches our experience of creating and understanding.

So, bring a sketchbook and your favorite pen or pencil, and wear comfy clothes! The fun begins tonight at 7:00 PM. This event is FREE and open to the public, and you are strongly encouraged to "RSVP" so they have an idea of how many people to expect. Beautiful Town Hall is located at 1119 Eighth Avenue, Seattle.

Kipp Friedman in Conversation in Chicago!
Written by janice headley | Filed under Kipp Friedmanevents 18 Oct 2013 7:13 AM

Kipp Friedman is bringing the Barracuda to The Book Cellar in Chicago on Wednesday, November 13th!

Join Kipp for a conversation at 7:00 PM with fellow author Barry Wightman as they discuss Barracuda in the Attic, Kipp's memoir about growing up and getting into hi-jinx on both coasts with his brothers Drew and Josh Friedman.  Perhaps Kipp will talk about shooting pool with the mobster Crazy Joey Gallo, attending a dinner party hosted by an aged but remarkably spry Groucho Marx, or simply playing doctor with a classmate in the former estate of F. Scott Fitzgerald... it's sure to be a fascinating and hilarious evening!

The Book Cellar is located at 4736-38 N Lincoln Ave in Chicago.
