Every few months, Seattle Art Museum hosts a party for artists and enthusiasts alike that explores not only visual art but dance, music, etc. The event is called the SAM Remix. This Friday, June 6th from 8 p.m.-midnight will be the next event in the series. It not only allows you to see the museum at night, it also has a plethora of activities to engage you which the website lists as:
- Get in the groove with records spanning the decades with DJ Sassyblack.
- Create stackable rings with artist Trudee Hill.
- Experience Restless, an interactive performance installation by artist Rulon Brown, who builds a musical narrative around the medical system and ideas of the American dream.
- Stage the ultimate avant-garde selfie with three-dimensional iconic images from the greats of the Surrealism, Dada, Orphism, and Cubism movements with artist Tariqa Waters.
- Inspired by Lynn Hershmann Leeson’s work in the Mechanical Bride installation, create wearable mechanical tech forms that explore objectification of the human body in technology, advertisements, and social media with artist Romson Bustillo.
- Compose collaborative projections using images from vintage advertisements and fashion magazines like “paraphotographer” Robert Heinecken’s work in the Mechanical Bride installation
Although the cost is $25/person ($20/students) or $12 if you are already a member of SAM, attending one of these events is worth your time to experience an art museum in a whole new light!
