Sunday July 27, 1-4 pm
Exhibit runs: June 6 – July 27
This is the very last opportunity to see this exhibition of art and ephemera that comprises the Alan Selby aka Mr. S collection before it heads to the National Leather Museum in Chicago - permanently! Come hang out with curator Dr. Jordy Tackitt-Jones, CSC staff and other perverts taking a break from the alley filth. (or come get spanked indoors)
