Asia After Dark: Peacockalypse
Hosted by the Silk Road Society
With music by BETTY
Saturday, June 13, 8 pm–12 am
Freer and Sackler Galleries
Don your finest feathers for the first Asia After Dark of 2015, the thirteenth in this series of beloved after-hours parties. Flash back to the gilded glamour of the Peacock Room and meet its alter ego Filthy Lucre, an installation by contemporary artist Darren Waterston that reimagines Whistler’s famous work as a resplendent ruin. Strut through the galleries sporting gold temporary tattoos, take offbeat tours, fashion your own masterpiece, and make fun photo-booth memories. While sipping specialty cocktails, shake a tail feather to music by activist pop rock trio BETTY and repeat the Asia After Dark mantra: Art, Drink, and Be Happy!
