10/1 Hella Pretty, Hella Serious, Hella Art
Posted by novoscene on September 30, 2008
The Hella Pretty Army is “an army of San Francisco’s most revolutionary and passionate writers, musicians, performers and art makers” coming together to throw a big ass party and benefit for Fran Varian,-poet, and queer rights activist recently diagnosed recently with Lyme Disease.
Through her career as a health worker and counselor and lifelong work as a poet, artist and activist, Varian has been championing area arts and community causes for years and now that community’s giving back in her time of need. This show is all about raising funds for the one treatment designed to combat the later stages of the disease, and the treatment ain’t cheap. Local art lovers are asked to give as much as they can while enjoying the work performers including Mark Growden, Lauren Wheeler, Vagabondage, Meliza Bañales, Katrina James, Heathen Machinery and Steven Schwartz in addition to a silent auction that includes one of a kind art, couture fashion, handmade chapbook. Stop by and show your love with your presence and you open purse, cuz sometimes the phrase funding for the arts takes on varied, but necessary new meanings.-Kwan
