Museum Mix

Despite the fact that it happens three times a year, the Georgia Museum of Art’s Museum Mix never fails to send a buzz through the office. This season’s incarnation was no exception (knowing DJ YaTuSabes and D:RC (aka Darcy Reenis) are setting up on the floor below makes it difficult to concentrate), but the excitement is never just ours.

Keep 'em dancing, D:RC!
Last week, nearly 400 Athenians and visitors of all ages joined us at the free event on Thursday night for a full evening of drinks and dancing, helping us get through several cases of PBR and break in a makeshift dance floor after we were forced inside due to the rain. Coinciding with our exhibition of the 20th-century Mexican printmaking of El Taller de Gráfica Popular, the museum’s entire downstairs was mobilized with the aid of salsa dip and salsa music, and we got some great feedback on the opportunity to see this fascinating show in such a special way – late at night and with a glass of wine in hand.

As always, the museum is proud to be at the center of such a fun and engaged community. We love to see both young and old experiencing the museum in such a variety of ways and share our space for such lively events.

Museum Mix continues later this year – we hope to see you at the next one (hopefully rain-free) on October 1.
