Hairy Men and Hard Alcohol: Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Whiskey Waxing Event

This week artist Walter Green takes the helm of Drawing Crowds. Jay Sacher, the column’s originator, has moved onto greener pastures back East. He will be missed!

To kick things off, Drawing Crowds bravely waded into a gathering of hirsute men (and the people who love them) having their facial hair massaged into wacky shapes as part of Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Whiskey Waxing event, designed to accompany the ongoing exhibit, Bay Area Now 6.

Bay Area Now 6,
 the triennial exhibition at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts devoted to regional artists who work across disciplines from performance to visual art, to film and video, brought Out There toYBCA last Friday night for the show’s opening event.
