Art Opening June 3, 1-5pm

Sunday, June 3 from 1-5pm at 1550 S. State Street.

Join Philamonjaro (the artist) and Overflow for the opening of a new body of work titled Desert Dreams. The exhibit features twenty two framed works of large scale art photographed at The Burning Man Festival located in the Black Rock Desert in northern Nevada.

The exhibit will be up through the month of June but this is your chance to meet the artist.

New! Walking and Prayer Group

We gather at Overflow Coffee Bar on Wednesdays at 7pm.  Then, we go for a walk during which we converse and meditate.  We end back at Overflow at 8pm.  Casual.  Relaxed. Good for body and soul.  All viewpoints, backgrounds, and ages welcome.

We're trying this for the summer to see how it goes.  Please join us.

Documentary Film Screening: Call + Response

CALL+RESPONSE is a first of its kind feature documentary film that reveals the world's 27 million dirtiest secrets: there are more slaves today than ever before in human history. CALL+RESPONSE goes deep undercover where slavery is thriving from the child brothels of Cambodia to the slave brick kilns of rural India to reveal that in 2009, Slave Traders made more money than Google, Nike and Starbucks combined.

Luminaries on the issue such as Cornel West, Madeleine Albright, Daryl Hannah, Julia Ormond, Ashley Judd, Nicholas Kristof, and many other prominent political and cultural figures offer first hand account of this 21st century trade. Performances from Grammy-winning and critically acclaimed artists including Moby, Natasha Bedingfield, Cold War Kids, Matisyahu, Imogen Heap, Talib Kweli, Five For Fighting, Switchfoot, members of Nickel Creek and Tom Petty's Heartbreakers, Rocco Deluca move this chilling information into inspiration for stopping it.
