Celebrate the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s newest exhibition, Gene Davis: Hot Beat with an evening of drinks and dancing inspired by the artist’s colorful, rhythmic stripe paintings on November 19. Come dressed in 60s attire and enjoy tours of the exhibition, groove to 1960s favorites spun on vinyl by DJ Harry Hotter, and strike a pose in the photo booth with your favorite Gene Davis painting.
Sip hand-crafted cocktails and enjoy a savory buffet of delicious retro-inspired party fare, including glazed ham, deviled eggs, wedge salad, grilled cheese, and more. Spend the evening challenging your friends to a giant game of Operation, tie yourself in knots over Twister, and illuminate the night with the largest Lite Brite you’ve ever seen complete with life-size vintage board games. The party will also bid farewell to SAAM’s director, Betsy Broun, who is retiring after nearly thirty years. Buy tickets here – valet parking is included. SAAM Creatives and Director’s Circle members receive complimentary tickets. Join today!
