The Story of Chickens Closing Reception Tonight and Line Drawings of Famous Subways

We have seen an empty chicken coop in various places downtown, but the travels of the chicken coop will end tonight at a reception at the Percolator.  The project, funded by a Rocket Grant Proposal, gained national attention and much controversy.

Here are the events planned:

Potluck begins at 6:30pm

Guest speakers will share stories about their experiences with chickens. The stories range in topics from raising chickens for personal consumption, to researching the effects of factory farms, to advocating for animal abolition and vegan lifestyles.

Guest Speakers:

Hank will: Editor of GRIT Magazine and local farmer

The Percolator is located in the alley behind the Arts Center.  


Here is an interesting site via Mentalplex.  Line drawings of well known subways without labels are available in posters.
