health magazine: What's going on

Artists wanted for Zeitgeist events

It's an interesting invitation for artists: Zeitgeist Gallery will provide the materials, and you provide the talent.

The Fifth Annual Visual Jam Sessions at the Zeitgeist Gallery will celebrate collaborative efforts to produce works in different media: painting, sculpture, mosaics and "whatever other mediums we can get our hands on," planners say.

All the works created will be used in fund-raising for Zeitgeist. Added incentive for artists: free beer, wine and food!

You can register or just show up at the events, which start Friday and run through July 28.

For a complete schedule, call 313-965-9192 or go to www.zeitgeistdetroit.org.

EBay selling bit of 'Prada'

The fashion pack will be heading to cinemas Friday to catch "The Devil Wears Prada," the film based on the best-selling novel about the glamorous and not-so-glamorous aspects of working in the fashion-magazine business.

Naturally, clothes are a huge part of the film, which is probably the first movie title to so prominently feature a designer name.

EBay will put 73 items -- clothing, accessories and shoes -- on the block so fashionistas can own a piece of "The Devil Wears Prada."

Only one actual Prada dress, a black cocktail number with cap sleeves worn by Hathaway on-screen, is among the eBay offerings.

"The Devil Wears Prada" duds will be sold in two blocks, with half up for grabs through Saturday at www.eBay.com and a second cache going up for bid Friday through July 6.

Dress for Success will get 50% of the proceeds from the sale. The nonprofit organization is known for providing business attire to low-income women for jobs and interviews.
