Trash-master Shrine held his Burning Man temple fundraiser, Basura Sagrada, at the DNA Lounge last Thursday. Continuing the tradition started by David Best in 2000, Shrine is undertaking the mighty task of providing Burning Man with its temple. In 2007 he brought the Tasseograph Trash Tea Temple (pictured here and here) which has also made appearances at Yuri’s Night and Lightning in a Bottle.
Entertainment this eve included Bad Unkl Sista, donning a long strip of cloth then painted live by Shrine; performances by Vau de Vire Society and Lucent Dossier Vaudeville Cirque; a silent auction of many lovely pieces of artwork — paintings, tables, suitcases, clothes and jewelry; and a full-sized painting made live by Shrine.
