Art After Dark!
We went to Art After Dark 7 at Art Museum of the Americas. Here, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden's Drew Doucette, Renae Stenhouse and artist Rachel Schmidt.
Art After Dark 7 was hosted by the Organization of American States and the Friends of AMA. It's a popular after-hours event bringing together art and music lovers to celebrate al fresco in the lush, French gardens of the OAS. Here, Art Museum of the Americas' Jennifer Lubrani Cisneros with The Trust for the Americas' Linda Eddleman and her husband, Lee Vogan.
The main visual backdrop of this year’s event consisted of large-scale video art projections on the OAS’s historic building façade, produced by video artists throughout the Caribbean and selected from a pool of entries by IDB Creativity. Live performances included DC electro-pop band Incredible Change, DJ Shea Van Horn, musical act Luis Garay and performance artist Carolina Mayorga. Here, Ambassador of Spain to the OAS Jorge Hevia with Art Museum of the Americas' Nuria Clusella-Fabrés.
Art After Dark is also the Art Museum of the Americas' fundraising event that allows AMA to maintain a vigorous schedule of exhibits and programs for members and museum visitors. Here, OAS assistant secretary general Nestor Mendez and his wife, Elivra, with Alejandra Lambert and her husband, OAS secretary for hemispheric affairs James Lambert.
