"The Dude abides. I don't know about you but I take comfort in that. It's good knowin' he's out there. The Dude. Takin' 'er easy for all us sinners." - The Stranger, The Big Lebowski

The infamous Jeff Dowd, inspiration for Jeff Bridges' legendary character in The Big Lebowski, the man behind The Coen Brothers, co-founder of the Sundance Institute, and an original member of the Seattle Seven is coming to Humboldt to help Dell’Arte bring MARY JANE - A MUSICAL POTUMENTARY into the world.  Activist, film maker/distributor, writer, agitator, and speaker Jeff Dowd will be doing several events from Feb 9 to Feb 11 to help Dell’Arte raise some additional resources for Mary Jane, culminating in a giant Lebowski film party at the Eureka Theatre on Saturday, Feb. 11. Mark your calendars! A full list of “Dude” events is on the Events page. Mr. Dowd will also be available to press/media and is open to speaking to other groups Feb. 8 – 11.
