The Art F City Wienerfest and Fundraiser at Postmasters December 16, 2012
“ARTINFO never got around to choosing its signature wiener. Now I wish we had.”
Ben Davis, ARTINFO
“We don’t have a signature wiener because it would be too small.”
Howard Halle, Time Out NY
This December 16th, pull out your paper hats and start dreaming of mustard because you’re coming to The Art Fag City Wienerfest and Fundraiser. Why? Because you haven’t heard enough dick jokes this year. This is a party and was always a party however the destruction caused by Hurricane Sandy means that many people in the art world are now struggling with far more serious problems. Chelsea flooded. DUMBO was swamped. Many galleries, nonprofits, and residencies do not know when—or even if—they will be able to return to business. It wouldn’t be right to party without helping out. Smack Mellon is located directly across from Brooklyn Bridge Park, in one of the lowest-lying areas of DUMBO. They’re estimating the damage from Hurricane Sandy at $400,000. No amount of wieners will fix that on its own, but Smack Mellon sorely needs whatever help we can give them. So prices have changed to include your ability to donate to bringing this amazing place back.
Your ticket to this event not only guarantees you all the beer and hot dogs you can eat, but front row seats to our raffle drawing and the grand unveiling of the Art Fag City Signature Wiener. That’s right, folks, December 16th, Art Fag City becomes the world’s first critical outlet to have its own signature wiener.
