Mar. 8: IN THESE BOXES
Say someone died and now you have their belongings, or maybe just one thing. It might not even be valuable, but you can’t bring yourself to throw it out. Musician and artist Dudley Saunders is collecting images of such relics to create a “social media cemetery.” Some of those photos appear in his performance art piece IN THESE BOXES, which you can see tomorrow night at 8 at BloomBars in Northwest. The social documentary includes music, video and photography in a tribute to past lives and imagined lost souls. The show does include sexual themes and nude imagery.

Mar. 7-29: Sculptors Draw
