William Cullen Hart, Black Foliage.

If you've ever secretly dreamed of a late-night rendezvous in a museum, a la the children's novel From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler or Ben Stiller film Night at the Museum, look no further than Museum Mix at the Georgia Museum of Art. The thrice-yearly art party, which will be held on Oct. 16 from 8:30 p.m. to midnight, will spotlight the theme of the exhibition "The ... of E6," the Athens-based recording collective Elephant 6.

Attendees can visit the art galleries during these special hours, which follow the museum's Student Night event that takes place from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The event will also feature some special guestsJamey Huggins, John Fernandes, Dottie Alexander, and Bryan Poolewho were members of the E6 movement and will serve as DJs. Refreshments will be provided and drinks will be available to guests 21 and up who have valid identification. Earth Fare will provide snacks for Museum Mix.
