Last Call For YBCA "Big Idea" Night: Ritual & Redemption
This Saturday, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts will hold its final free "What's the Big Idea?" late night party of the season, ending on the theme "Ritual & Redemption." The party starts at 9 pm, and while they're no longer accepting RSVPs for preferred admission, everyone is welcome to show up and wait in line. With the Mission Street Food truck (yes, they're back in a truck!) arriving outside the museum on 3rd Street at 7:30 p.m., you have incentive to get there early. The lineup includes music from local bands Pansy Division and Ex-Boyfriends, "Project Nunway" from the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, and free tattoos from local tattoo artists. If you really love YBCA, getting a YBCA logo tattoo and filling out some paperwork will get you a free lifetime membership. Cheap cash bar too, of course.
Attendees will also have access to the three current YBCA exhibitions—Nick Cave: Meet Me At the Center of the Earth (dancer and artist Nick Cave, not the Bad Seeds frontman); Under A Full Moon: 30 Years of Perpetual Indulgence, including art, photos, and artifacts from San Francisco's outragous drag nuns; and Through Future Eyes: The Endurance of Humanity, a collection of 11 pieces by artists like Shepard Fairey and Melissa Day, curated by six teens from YBCA's Young Artists at Work program.
