Several people have emailed me about upcoming events in the neighborhood. Here's a selection of the best: "Open House" at the Irondale Center, 85 S. Oxford. The piece involves making an entire house with people's bodies as the walls, windows, chairs and tables. The audience is invited to experience the structure both from outside as well as from within the living space. The event is entirely FREE and open to the public. www.thelivingroomproject.info Thursday, 12/10/09 , 8pm
