When they aren't busy appropriating inflatables rats used by pro-Union protestors at construction sites using scab labor, or sailing around Manhattan in a mock homage to Christo and Jeanne-Claude's The Gates, the anonymous Brooklyn artist collective known as the Bruce High Quality Foundation runs their own version of an art school. The non-profit Bruce High Quality Foundation University, or BHQFU for short, offers courses such as "Object Relations: Reading and Talking Together," "The Only War That Matters Is The War Against The Imagination: A Poetry Workshop" and "Image Ecologies."
But as anyone paying college tuition or paying off a student loan knows, higher education doesn't come cheap! And so tonight, starting a 9pm, BHQFU is throwing a $50-a-head fundraiser. It's being held in the Bruce High Quality Foundation's sixth-floor Industry City studio at 33 34th St in Brooklyn. What do you get for $50? An open vodka bar stocked with Belvedere vodka, plus live music by Dev Hynes aka Blood Orange. The festivities last into the wee hours.
And if all of that isn't inducement enough, consider that the Brooklyn Costco is only a few blocks north. They're open until 8:30pm—plenty of time to stop in on your way and get that membership card you've been putting off buying.
