Museum event | Design the Night

Design your own summer night with mind-bending installations, quirky art-making and treats from local makers. Watch the sparks fly as artists demonstrate metalsmithing techniques on the Steel Yard’s mobile blacksmithing trailer. Grab a specialty cocktail from The East End and locally sourced food from Rhody Roots while you groove to the sounds of Nova One with Roz Raskin and friends.

Step inside to immerse yourself in a silly and serious spectacle as Jess Brown, aka the Lady J, occupies the Grand Gallery with an interactive installation questioning race and pop culture. Take part in a haunting storytelling game with Janaya Kizzie and the ritual art collective We Gather. Join a participatory experience designed by artist Andrew Oesch 02 FD and members of the 2019 Summer Teen Intensive program, and find your own creative voice with a hands-on activity for the whole family led by Hernan Jourdan.

Free! Enter at 20 North Main Street for this event.

Design the Night is sponsored by Site Specific and Zennovation.
