A Paradise Bizarre: Benefit Party for the Fabulous, Incomparable Proteus Gowanus Interdisciplinary Gallery and Reading Room

Proteus Gowanus Interdisciplinary Gallery and Reading Room--my hands down favorite gallery in New York!--is having an excellent sounding benefit party this Saturday evening, and you are invited. Free food and wine and a variety of paradisical and profane amusements await! Oh, and its a good cause, too; Support Proteus Gowanus and you also support Observatory and the Morbid Anatomy Library, who number among its projects in residence!

Very much hope to see you there.

A Paradise Bizarre
A Fairground of Acts, Exhortations and Seductions
and our 2011 Benefit Celebration
Saturday, June 11, 7-10 pm

A carnival-bazaar of music, dancers, writhers, preachers,
fixers, puppets, therapists - in intimate interactions -
designed to save your soul or make you forget you ever wanted to.

Paradise Bizarre is the culmination of our
yearlong exploration of Paradise
through art, artifacts, books, performances and events,
bringing together old and new Protean collaborators

True believers, heathens, skeptics, pagans, atheists and heretics all welcome!

Music by
Harpist Crista Patton
