Opening Reception
Saturday, Oct 1, 2011
4pm-7pm
Ben Maltz Gallery
Free Admission & ParkingAt 4pm Artist Linda Vallejo will conduct an opening ceremony to honor the legacy of the women at the Woman’s Building. The ceremony will pay homage to the elements of earth, water, fire, and air, the four cardinal directions, mother earth, father sky, and the great spirit. An altar will be built with special items donated by members of the audience that recall the relationships, memories and accomplishments of the Woman’s Building community.

From 5pm to 7pm there will be a performance by The Waitresses called Order Up! A woman dressed as a waitress with a serving tray follows a customer dressed in costume who drops money for her to pick up. As the waitress bends down, her outfit reveals her sexually, as on of the “rules” is “the sexier the waitress, the bigger the tip.”
