The Big Sham Jamski

The Alaska Young Democrats invite you to the 27th annual Sham Jam party at 7 p.m. Saturday night at the Canvas Art Studio at 223 Seward Street.

This year’s theme is The Big Lebowski and attendees are encouraged to dress up as their favorite Big Lebowski characters and participate in a costume contest. There will be a live DJ, open bar and door prizes. Tickets are $20 and attendees must be 21 or older.

This year, all proceeds will benefit the Canvas. The Canvas provides studio, pottery, and gallery facilities for the Juneau arts community with a goal of providing a supportive environment that fosters creativity and inclusion of adults with disabilities through shared art experiences and exhibitions.
