Join PAFA for an evening of art plus live music and spoken word performances during a “Turned On”-themed PAFA After Dark on Thursday, March 8 from 6-9 p.m.
The event kicks off the spring season of PAFA After Dark with an evening of various eclectic events, all based on the night’s theme: light.
The evening includes an interactive piece on how electric lights work by inventor artists extraordinaire from The Hacktory and Hive76; performances by percussion group Spoken Hand; gallery talks on the reality of the electric light bulb in the 19th Century; opera singer Alicia Mendoza; and spoken word poet Nina “Lyrispect” Ball.
And of course, you’ll get to see the academy’s current exhibit, Henry Ossawa Tanner: Modern Spirit, in a whole new light.
Curating the guest performances is Fourth Wall Arts, who will flip all of their creative switches to ensure an “enlightening” evening for all to enjoy.
PAFA After Dark takes place on four Thursdays each year from 6 to 9 p.m. Don’t miss the first 2012 installment!
Tickets are available online.
