Final Fridays: LMAO

Friday, September 28

Art Food & Drink History Music Parkway District

End the month with a bang! Experience live performances, hands-on art-making, and in-gallery activities on Final Fridays. Each month join us for a unique theme and Detours, unconventional gallery tours for the adventurous as well as cocktails and tapas-style dishes by Starr Catering Group.

Stand-up and improv comics take over the galleries, and absurdist soul outfit Johnny Showcase & The Mystic Ticket tear it up on the dance floor. Some programs present language and content which may not be suitable for children.
