The Dumpster Dive

From the international superstars who brought you "Johnny Depp: a Retrospective on Late-Stage Capitalism" comes some totally free PPE (Personalized Punk Experiences). Swing by our humble outdoor craft table for some handcrafted joy!

Wait, is this a show or a craft fair? It’s sort of both!

Val Dunn will write you a punk song, Jenna Kuerzi will perform said punk song, and YOU will take home a totally adorable copy of these one of a kind lyrics — all for the stunning price of pay-what-you-decide/zero dollars. Whether you need to laugh, rage, or mourn, we will tailor the PPE to your socially-distanced heart’s desire.

Various pandemic craft projects made by these under-baked auteurs will also be available for purchase.

One of the guaranteed crafts available for purchase:
Dumpster Fires For You is a pandemic candle project from Jenna Kuerzi. Upcycled, unconventional, and antique containers (doomed to dusty corners of a thrift store) are turned into treasures you'll love. "Extremely affordable" is always the theme.
