Haircuts & Popsicles
So basically those are the exact two things that will will be going on as part of Haircuts and Popsicles. "Celebrate the summer with specialty popsicles, haircuts, and performance. Filmmaker Josh Lee will sell his inventively flavored popsicles to onlookers while they watch haircuts and buzz cuts performed by artists in the gallery space. The hair clippings will accumulate for the duration of the performance, resulting in a sculptural work.Walk-ins are welcome. No appointments are necessary." Haircuts: Free, Popsicles: $3. Actual Size, Chinatwon, 1-6 pm. [Facebook]
