Carnival Mecanique- Art at the SF Dump. 503 Tunnel Ave, San Francisco, CA 94134 US
Host Dona Booher says, “Join me for a carnival art exhibition at the San Francisco Dump (technically it’s a waste transfer facility…not a true Dump). I know that going to a dump is not a standard Friday night social scene — but why in the world would you want to be ordinary? If you haven’t been to an art reception at the dump, you’ve been missing out on a rather unique SF social event that will make you see your garbage in a whole new light.”
Enjoy wine & light hors d’oeurves while admiring art made of stuff salvaged from the garbage pit and turned into carnival games and bicycle powered kinetic sculptures. Culture, Skee-Ball, networking & recycling, all in one night…what more could you ask for?
Show up if & when you can for as little or long as you want. The reception goes from 5-9PM. I plan to arrive by 7:30 and will probably stay until 8:30 to hear the Crank Ensemble band. Friends are welcome, it’s open to the public & free.
The artist Paul Cesewski is creating a carnival midway, a series of booths with “games of skill” such as a ring toss and Skee-Ball. The exhibition will feature a series of heavy-handed amusement machines imbued with a lighthearted sense of nostalgia.
Have a great week!
