Happening Sunday: Sketchy Dating, Eyehategod, and more

-Sketchy Dating: Finally, an excuse to make scary intense eye contact with random strangers. What better way to meet your next special someone than by drawing their inevitably unflattering portrait in five minutes or less? Ten bucks gets you a drink, a painless facial anatomy lesson, all the materials you need to make your crapsterpiece, and maybe even that valentine you were stressed to find by next week. 7 p.m., Holy Frijoles, 908 W. 36th St., (410) 235-2326, holyfrijoles.net, $10.

-100% YES (fill in the blank): Press-Press Pop-Up: In our State of the Arts issue last fall, artist and organizer for the Baltimore Art + Justice Project Kalima Young wrote about the siloing of the arts that happens in the city, and the classist and racist roots that cause this separation. These conversations are crucial to building a more inclusive and diverse community, and things will only change if they are coupled with practical applications—such as this collaboration between the Press-Press team (featuring Kimi Hanauer and other MICA student collaborators) and Baltimore City Community College Refugee Youth Project (RYP). This manifesto project is based on ideals set by the youths involved in RYP, which is an after-school program designed to help young refugee kids in the area with their homework, motivate them to stay in school, and give them a safe space to be creative. For this project, everyone (100% YES, you too) is invited to contribute their own ideal to the manifesto at the gallery or online. These contributions will be made into woodcuts and printed by the Press-Press team, culminating in a publication, which we hope will encourage future projects to similarly reach across these perceived boundaries. Opening reception 7-10 p.m., through Feb. 28, Current Space, 421 N. Howard St., press-press-publishing.tumblr.com, free. (Rebekah Kirkman)
