The multiple-sensory experience is heralded by the performance group Gaia. Gaia uses elements of dance, music, and art for a pleasing interactive experience, and will include the works within the Corcoran to complement the evening, most notably the Chris Martin: Painting Big exhibit. There will be music performances from several artists including Deborah Bond and Third Logic, dj Stylus, visual performances by magician David London and dancer Ilana Silverstein, and much more. Guests are encouraged to walk between the performers within the open-stage setting and therefore be in the center of the atmosphere.

The event is being held from 7:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m. Tickets are $40 for non-members and $30 for members, and can be purchased at the door. Open bar and light refreshments are included in admission. To learn more, visit
