The Philadelphia Museum Of Art To Kick Off College Day 2012 With A “Philadelphia DJ Dance Party” Friday Night, September 28: Food, Drinks, Music And Gallery Access Until Midnight
Campus Philly’s College Day 2012 returns to the city this Saturday, September 29 with food, music and entertainment on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway along with free student admission to a dozen museums.
One of those museums is the Philadelphia Museum of Art, which is kicking off College Day 2012 with an awesome edition of Art After 5 the night before, Friday, September 28.
Titled the “Philadelphia DJ Dance Party,” the event celebrates the cool new exhibition Full Spectrum: Prints from the Brandywine Workshop. As with every Art After 5, Starr events will stock the bar and sell hors d’oeuvres.
The dance party begins at 5:45 p.m. and continues until midnight with many museum galleries open throughout the whole night. Here’s the program:
Great Stair Hall: From 5:45-8 p.m., Philly-based DJ Phoenix will open the dance party. From 8 p.m.-midnight, Rich Medina and The Marksmen will present Jump N Funk.
Alter Gallery 176: The Philly Youth Poetry Movement will share literary expression from 5:45-7 p.m., followed by Spoken Soul 215 until 9 p.m.
Lenfest Hall: Visitors can collaborate with Philadelphia Pop artist Perry Milou to create an interactive masterwork, a four-by-eight-foot night cityscape.
Throughout the Museum: Campus Philly will offer giveaways and insider tips on making the most of College Day on the Parkway. Many of the galleries will remain open until midnight for a full exploration of exhibitions and the museum’s collection.
And don’t forget you can catch Open Air from the museum’s East Terrace from 8-11 p.m.
On College Day itself the next day, Saturday September 29, admission to the PMA is free for students. Check out more details on College Day in our previous post.
