The Opening was a Blast! Big thanks to everyone who came out, even though it was that first cold rainy Friday of the fall, to the artists who brought such a delicious variety of food stuff, and the volunteers who kept the place safe and legal for the OLCC.

Also, the music was wonderful! Nico Luminous took time to throw down some excellent tracks and video scratching in between his three other gigs that weekend, and DJ Doo Doo, DJ Illslur and crew represented all night with some wicked free-styling during the second half. Thanks y’all!


From the Call to Artists

Nearly a third of your life is spent sleeping, inhabiting a world visible only to your mind’s eye, bounded only by the firings of your synapses. Naked dreams; flying dreams; falling dreams; fever dreams; prophetic dreams; sex dreams; dream lovers; dreams of the dead; day dreams; dreams of glory; hopes & dreams; nightmares; “I have a dream”; a dream within a dream….

What happens to a dream deferred? How different really is dreaming from being awake? Where do you go when you dream, and who do you become? Where does the dream end and reality begin? What are your dreams and aspirations and how do they affect you today and shape who you will be tomorrow?

Please participate and share your dreams with us…
