Pin Projekt

When: Fri., May 28, 6 p.m. 2010

In a recent press release, Melissa Thomas, director of the Troika Music Festival, described the bowling pins for sale at the festival's annual fundraiser, Pin Projekt, as "reconditioned." That's technically correct, yes, but these pins are better described as reimagined. Last year, the pins became a cow, a giant tribute to downtown Durham's Lucky Strike iconography, a phoenix and a kid-carrying dinosaur. Last year, two pins sold for more than $300 each, a testament to the unique vision the best artists supply to these formerly mundane objects. This year's artists include John Harrison, Steve Oliva, Matt Park, Billy Sugarfix, Wendy Spitzer, Zeno Gill, Lalitree Darnielle, Dave Rogers and Dave Alsobrooks. See the goods at 6 p.m., and begin bidding at 6:30 p.m. A karaoke party led by Red Collar's Jason Kutchma follows. —Grayson Currin
