This was one of several activities Allen Bukoff conducted at the Center for Creative Studies during 1993 to promote Fluxus and to celebrate FLUXUS Midwest's Year Of The Hot Dog. This included providing information about Fluxus and the major Fluxus art exhibition that was touring the country. It also included a visit and performance from the Sandbag From Iowa traveling exhibition.
