If you are in the neighborhood stop by tomorrow, 2,191 Days and Counting is mounted and we are gearing up for the Saturday reception and performance. Festivities begin at 6pm, with beer, wine and food from Agata and Valentina, then DJ Scientific will be on from 7:30-8pm, following from 8-10pm Safa Samiezade-Yazd will MC a cabaret that includes beatboxing, arias, poetry, monologues and more.

For those of you interested in building an art collection, we have works ranging from a selection of $100 pieces on the Salon wall to large scale paintings, photographs, and sculptures. All proceeds will be donated to the Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) Winter Soldier Project inspired by the courageous Vietnam veterans who came forward in 1971 to testify at the original Winter Soldier investigation. IVAW is collecting soldiers’ firsthand accounts of both wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. All veterans are invited to give testimony, regardless of their politics. The project will provide them with legal and mental health support. Members of IVAW will be present at the reception.
