The Hunter Museum of American Art is taking folks through the “Portals of Possibility” during this year’s Hunter Underground fundraising event on Friday, March 1.

Starting at 8 p.m., partygoers will see the museum transform into a new world, all inspired by its latest exhibition “Networked Nature” — showcasing patterns of life through advanced technologies. The night will be as interconnected as the exhibit with:

  • Light installations by Justin Casey of Helm Projects + digital media by Lucy Allen of Super Regular Studios
  • Open bar + light food
  • Silent auction on local + regional artwork
  • Costume contest — think: mixed organic shapes, futuristic textures, digital hues, etc.
  • Blowout dance party

You might also want to keep an eye out for the several “Art Heist Gallery” ticket holders who will charge into the gallery every 30 minutes to claim a piece of donated art with the use of a flashlight.
Excited for the adventurous night? Step into the ticket portal. Note: This event is 21+.
