Today is Mime Day @ Live Oak Park!

The SFMT is in it's 51th season, and is an artist collective. Pretty amazing that they've been around for so long. They do social/political commentary. This program? Posibilidad: The Death of the Worker.

Oh well, got some shirts anyways to help donate to the collective...
