Dandies and Robinsons Play Glass Ball

Posted by Ned Lannamann on Thu, Oct 22, 2009 at 11:24 AM


The newly organized Portland Youth Development Coalition is dedicated to raising money and awareness for youth development—particularly in the area of arts education and job training. How are they doing this?

Glass balls.

That's right, a series of delicate 14-inch glass orbs have been hand-blown by artist Andy Pyko and decorated by local artists. They're on display at different locations around town, including the former NW 23rd outpost of Music Millennium. You'll be able to bid for your favorite ball at the PYDC Glass Ball Gala on November 14. And if you need something more than glass balls and schmoozing, there's music provided by the Dandy Warhols, Kevin and Anita Robinson of Viva Voce, the Last Regiment of Syncopated Drummers, and possibly Steve Turner from Mudhoney. The Glass Ball takes place at the very cool-looking Bison Building (421 NE 10th). Tickets are $40. (Steepish, but not outrageous. And there's an open bar! Oh, and it's for a good cause etc.)
