The Unicorn Mountain artist collective continues their 2009 campaign with a benefit event at the Remedy Restaurant and Lounge (5121 Butler St) in Lawrenceville this coming Friday, Sept 18!
THE ESOTERIC ORDER OF THE ILLUSTRIOUS OWL_BEAR is an event in two parts. The dinner crowd will be be able to enjoy live music as they dine on a special Bavarian three course meal and browse the silent art auction. At 10pm, things get loose as two floors of the city's best DJs spin hip hop, classic soul and metal for your listening pleasure. Throughout the night, patrons will be able to browse the art auction and bid on works by artists such as Ben Kehoe, Mike Budai and Masha Vereshchenko.

Proceeds from the event will go toward the publication of "The Black Forest" Unicorn Mountain's third anthology of Pittsburgh art, comics and folktales coming October 2009. Published in partnership with Encyclopedia Destructica, "The Black Forest" will be a dark, lyrical take on the folklore of rural western Pennsylvania. The book will feature the work of Ben and Andy Kehoe, Theo Ellworth (Capacity), Masha Vereshchenko, Ian Finch, Thad Kellstadt and many more. Over thirty artists in all!
