Febe’s “Leather David” Sculptor Mike Caffee at the Powerhouse

Leather David Home and Bath

History in the bars! In 1966, artist Mike Caffee created the iconic “Leather David [that] became one of the best-known symbols of San Francisco leather. [It]  appeared on pins, posters, calendars, and matchbooks…and plaster casts”*

Forty-five years later, Caffee is still on Folsom St., now at the Powerhouse, where he will be presenting a slide-show in conjunction with Forever Folsom, Jose Guevara’s Valentine’s Party at The Powerhouse 1347 Folsom Street San Francisco. 7-10 pm. Sunday, February 13th, 2011. For more, click here.
