Two Art Events: The 2nd Annual Kink Ink Art Event And Gotham's Fantasies To Benefit The Center for Sex and Culture
San Francisco, (March 23th, 2006) -- The Center for Sex & Culture, San Francisco's "Best Emerging Sex Non-Profit" (SF Bay Guardian Best of the Bay 2004) and "Best Place to Watch Porn and Still Feel Like An Intellectual" (SF Weekly's Best Of issue, 2005), announces its Second Annual Kink Ink Art Event, to be held April 8th, 2006 at Epicenter Gallery at the Center for Sex & Culture, 398 11th Street at Harrison. Kink Ink includes a silent auction of donated items, focusing on original adult comic art; a VIP reception featuring comic artists drawing art on live nude models; and a slate of performances by artists Tom Orr (Dirty Little Showtunes), Carol Queen (Peep Show), and others.
On April 7th, 2006 also at the Center for Sex and Culture, attend the Pre-viewing reception of Kink Ink art and the Gotham's Fantasies art reception, live performances and revel in some classic Batman music. Gotham's Fantasies features a photographic exhibition of models from last fall's Darkroom Theatre production of "Batman: The Musical". These costumed scenarios show a distinctly fetishistic side to classic super-hero and villain fantasies. Join us in Super Hero/Villain fetish attire for some classic Batman music.
