Break a Jar for Coos Art Museum

Please spread the word. The recent destruction of the Ai Weiwei vase prompted this. Since I was going to have this jar broken at the bottom of the painting anyway as part of the artwork, why not make it more interesting


During the show (April 18th through June 28th) we will have a drawing to find out who gets to come pick up the jar from under the painting and drop it. Money will be donated to the Coos Art Museum and the act will be posted on YouTube. $5.00 per ticket. You could be infamous.
Date of breaking will be announced.
Please share. You can also enter from afar and we will have someone drop it, saying "in the name of-------- we break this jar" or whatever clever thing you want said. Send your entry to "Break this Jar" c/o CAM, 235 Anderson Avenue, Coos Bay, Oregon 97420.
We will write your name on the entry form. Enter as many times as you wish. Good luck.

Beethoven's "Ghost" Piano Trio
Gliere's Duets for violin and cello
Deak's "Wager at the El Dorado Saloon"
Come enjoy an exciting performance by Chamber Music Amici, the resident chamber ensemble at the Wildish Theater in Springfield Oregon. CMA is one of the premiere chamber groups in the Pacific NW. Featured artists include pianist Victor Steinhardt, cellist Steven Pologe and violinist Kathryn Lucktenberg.
The epic "Ghost" trio is alleged to evoke the ghost of Hamlet's father while others suggest that it conjures up the images of ghosts and witches in Macbeth. The "Wager..."includes wild moments that call for the musicians to make sounds of a sled stuck in ice and dogs straining to free it. All in all, the program will delight all in attendance. We hope you can be there!!!
Reservations are required (541-459-7998).  Admission $30 includes abundant appetizers. 175 Hogan Rd, Oakland, OR, just 3 miles off I-5 Exit 142.
