This is a plug for a GREAT local art event that is coming up on January 21st. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Marin kicks off the new year with "Pins of Marin", a event that advertises and leads up to their biggest fundraiser of the year in March, "Bowl for Kids' Sake".

"Pins of Marin" is much like Hearts of San Francisco, but instead of painting or decorating hearts, the artists are asked to decorate bowling pins. Over 200 "Art Pins" will be displayed at a kick-off dinner and art reception next Wednesday night, 6-9pm, January 21, 2009, at Piatti Ristorante and Bar in Mill Valley. After the event, the pins are displayed in businesses throughout Marin to help advertise the upcoming "Bowl for Kids' Sake". The pins are also available to purchase via online auction from January through March. For more information, please email Tina Faulkner, or visit Big Brothers Big Sisters of the North Bay.
