Tom's Parties to show photos from event.

02/28/2007

From an e-mail to Sister Bubbles, coordinator, from Durk:

1. What is the maximum capacity of guests we may have?
I would say 60 guests would be tops as we have to have volunteers be docents and that takes some preplanning. please let us know how many you invite and how many have RSVP.

2. Where should people park once they arrive?
The situation for parking is as follows: its a afternoon party so you can park on Laveta and Scott and the other adjacent streets, better to park on ones that are on top of the hill rather than down on echo park or sunset so you dont have to do the climb.

3. Is there a fridge/freezer to store Ice & food?
We have a fridge outside in the patio and another one in the kitchen we do have ice chests so i would recommend that you bring ice and we will make sure the chests are here and you can ice all your drinks in an hour if you put water in the chests along with the ice.

We have a bar to serve off of and, as i said, if its not unpleasant. We can have the bar and food outdoors and if it is then well do it indoors. None-the-less it all will be open anyways. We will require that you have one sister at the front door along with a Foundation person as a greeter, and then any where you want those sisters they can take up location. Music... we do have a sound system and we shall see if we can get it all working well for your event. Do you need a mike.?

02/26/2007

From a letter to Sister Bubbles, coordinator, from Durk:

The Tom of Finland Foundation House will be open to the invited guests of The Sisters of Perputual Indulgence on Sunday March 4 from 1pm - 5pm. The Foundation will open all three floors of the facility showcasing over 150 original works of art that are presently on exhibit , with entree to Toms Studio and a rare look at some of his private archives. Along with this there will be a viewing of works that have just been framed and shall be going on exhibit next fall here at the foundation house. with a special showing of rare bar and bathhouse posters from Los Angeles and other locales past with a display of the deceased artists TANK'S work in reproduction format which along with other art will be available for sale that afternoon. The Sisters will be putting on a spread of edibles and drinks for their honored guests and the foundation will open up our visual edibles for your consumption...invited guests only. if you think you should be one of them then speak to Durk Dehner at the foundation or Sister Bubbles of the sisters at sisterbubbles1@aol.com

Include WHLA EAFW Banners. Supports for hanging?

08/17/2006

We have in the Foundation's Stock:
8 pieces of - THE COMIC COLLECTION
1 piece   of - ART OF PLEASURE (Flex Edition)
5 pieces of - DIRTY PICTURES (Soft Cover)
3 pieces of - DIRTY PICTURES (Hard Cover)
4 pieces of - TOM OF Finland LIFE & TIMES (Soft Cover not available in Hard)
5 pieces of - the DVD "DADDY & THE MUSCLE ACADEMY"

I would suggest, having worked the WH Book Fair last year, that we might want to order about 4 pieces of the ART OF PLEASURE. I think that is probably all we would need to order. They have to come from the Jackson TN, and they are not quick about getting their orders out, so we would have to order right away.

We can always fill in with things like "EMERGING EROTIC ARTISTS" and possibly some of Tom's books that we can take on consignment from the ToF Company.

Roger needs to know what to do.

Roger e-mails the September date and that we will be participating.

Dehner/Scott need to be back in touch with Eric who is the coordinator now for the line up of events there.

Michaeljohn was somewhat discouraging about it as they just did one last weekend and it was not a good turn out. Dehner reminded him that ToFF brought in a decent crowd a year ago. So it is up to Scott whether to do it or not.

Dehner is hoping to take this window and travel to Europe to visit Finland and family in Holland and also to visit London and Berlin - so he would not be there for support.

06/28/2006 MJs is good with date.
06/26/2006 Dehner to talk to Scott about this possible date.

ToFF Board / Staff attending. Babcock, Dehner, Sharp,

Public Detail Page

On Aug 18, 19, 25 & 26, there is a 20th anniversary production of Jerker at Space on Fountain. The director, Michael Kearns, would love to have the walls full of Tom of Finland art and make one performance a benefit. Also under consideration is a Sunday afternoon w/ readings of erotica.

08/05/2006

The reception will be wine & cheese.

Was it decided that ToFF would provide the food and drink, and in return would take the door as a benefit?

08/04/2006

It has come to the attention of ToFF on this date that Space doesn't have insurance in place for the art that will be shown. The Foundation doesn't have a policy for this off-site exhibition as it is customary that the providing facility provides such insurance.

ToFF is going forward with the exhbition but cannot take responsibility for damage or theft of work while the exhibition is there. ToFF will have each of the artists sign a statement that they will not hold the Foundation responsible. ToFF cannot advise the artists, one way or another, on keeping work up after the Saturday evening event.


Admission was settled at $7, because the sign at the door says so. Volunteers to arrive at 7:30. Some artists will bail after the opening due to insurance issues.

08/03/2006

Is general membership $10 and ToFF members $7?
What time are volunteers to show up?

07/27/2006

Berkowitz sends out contact list by e-mail. Louie posts a link to it (above).

07/25/2006

Joe Hilton will not be available. Live models not mentioned on promotional materials, so that activity probably cancelled.

07/23/2006

Berkowitz sends out reminder to artists to stop by the space itself to see what the walls look like and suggests that they work out a time to hang their art before August 5. ToFF webmaster and the people at Space need artist bios. Dehner to supply Kearns w/ ToF artwork.

06/27/2006

List the artists in alphabetical order.

If we can get models to pose, the exhibiting artists will probably not be doing the sketching.

06/26/2006

Each artist will have a space approximately 7' wide x 4' high in which to display their work (the ceilings are high). Artwork can be hung during the week preceding the opening, and the pieces should be removed sometime during the period of August 28-30.

Art that is for sale or not. Each artist to prepare a short bio with contact info, which ToFF will print and post. ToFF will have an exhibit about the life and work of Tom. Promotional materials for WHLA EAFW available to hand out.

06/24/2006

Berkowitz met with Michael a few days ago to work out (some) details -- and will have more details in the next several days. The precise name of the venue is "Space at Fountain's End" and they don't like to use the word "The" before "Space."

It will be a wine and cheese reception with the artists. Hopefully, there will also be a few artists sketching models throughout the evening to provide some eye candy -- they have a small stage area in the space. The Foundation will provide the wine and cheese, and in return will keep all proceeds of the evening as a Benefit. Kearns will be promoting the event (and the ongoing exhibit) to his email and mailing lists, and ToFF should do the same.

The exhibit will remain up through the weekend of the 27nd, and will need to be struck within the few days after that date. A number of other events will be happening throughout August, and Michael plans to open the Space for longer periods before and after, so that people can come view the exhibit at those hours, in addition to during an actual event.

They very much would like to use a Tom image to promote the event on postcards and their website -- hopefully Durk will work something out with them soon.

05/07/2006

There will be the erotic reading and the stage production. ToFF will do exhibition in lobby that will be up for the whole run. Artists to be invited to show: Jay Jorgensen; Ivy Bottini; Miguel Reyes; Michael Kirwan. The back wall will display the history of Tom.

02/05/2006

ToFF Board says this is something to look into. It might be a good way to get, and use, new artwork-banners.

06/10/2005 Tea Dance? Scott spoke with Tom briefly (and some of the other staff) about parking lot events and he will do some more homework. Once DD gets the go-ahead he will search for some "name" dee jays (local ones that would do it for free or for a token like $100 or so).
06/08/2005 Maybe something with Sweat in the title - since we will also have the patio and it will most likely be hot and sweaty in late July. Not sure what imaging we can use with that theme - I was thinking instead of T-shirts or tank tops we could make "sweat towels" (small little towels with ToFF logo or imaging on it.) I have seen this done at other events (ex. IML) and it seems to go over well (people can use them for cum-rags after the event) and people could put them in their right or left pocket to decare themseves if they choose of just have it hanging out of their zipper!
06/05/2005 Date is set for 07/31/05. Theme TBD. "GROIN" is no longer under consideration.
05/27/2005 Berkowitz will not be available on July 31st as he will be on the east coast.
05/14/2005 Scott has to be out of town on the 17th. Does the 31st work?
05/13/2005 Scott confirms date w/ Tom Walker of 07/17/2005. Will contact him in June so planning can start. (Changed from tentative date of 07/24/2005.)
03/17/2005 Posted on Planning Calendar. Planning begins. Parking Lot party? Parking lot for customer use? No details as of yet.
03/16/2005 July 24th - confirmed date for event.
02/21/2005 Arrange a time in summer. MJs postponing the expansion of the patio for the time being. Saturday night or possible Sunday afternoon.

Booted and Jockstrap wrestling theme? Strip Poker theme? Mexican masked wrestlers for performers? $5.00 to $6.00 door charge. Postcard for MJs event.

ToFF's schedule is filling up fast so date/plans need to be set ASAP.

12/05/2004 Board members agreed to hold an event at MJ's in 2005.
