San Francisco: Altered Barbie exhibit at Shotwell 50 Gallery; things to do

San Francisco

Altered Barbie exhibit at Shotwell 50 Gallery

Altered Barbie exhibit   At Shotwell 50 Gallery, 50 Shotwell St./14th St., Mission District, (415) 240-2202.  Free, but donations welcome, including donations of used and new Barbies and Kens and accessories. 

Don’t miss this exhibition of clever Barbie art, contributed to by artists who like to have fun.  Displayed against black fabric walls in this converted garage space located on a mostly residential side street, the clever, campy art pops out.  Are you ready for Barbie as a tarantula, or a toasted Barbie lounging in a toaster?  The show does include some x-rated interpretations, so is not appropriate for children.  A few related crafty items are for sale, and special events include a make-your-own altered Barbie workshop. Runs through Sunday, November 17, 2013.
