Going Out Guide: Art After Dark
Museums Art After Dark
All aboard the after-hours art party train. In the tradition of the Phillips Collection, the Hirshhorn Museum and the Sackler Gallery, the Art Museum of the Americas is hosting its own get-together this week. The museum's inaugural event -- a fundraiser for programs and exhibitions -- includes live music, performance art and a cash bar. Visitors can hang out on the lovely outdoor terrace or wander inside to take a look at images of buildings designed by Paul Philippe Cret, the subject of the museum's most recent special exhibit. On the music scene, local band Exactly and DJ Smudge will be on hand, while Carolina Mayorga presents performance art and percussionist Marcelo Woloski performs. For those who want to keep the revelry going, there will be an after-party at George, and all event attendees will automatically be put on the guest list.
Thursday at 8 p.m. Art Museum of the Americas, 201 18th St. NW. http:/
