AMSO Presents Its Third Annual Art After Dark

Looking for something to do tonight?

Tonight, Feb. 13, the Art Museum Student Organization at Indiana University is hosting its third annual Art After Dark, a classy and fun arts-oriented event that has not yet failed to please. The museum, designed by legendary architect I.M. Pei, was erected in 1982. If you haven’t been yet, you should definitely take this opportunity to experience the strikingly angular space.

This year’s theme is very Great Gatsby-esque, boasting a jazz performance by Nothing in Common, swing dance lessons, food, and art (of course). The jazz duet will feature Tim Fogarty and Bobby Scharmann, and lasts from 7-8 p.m. Swing dance performance and subsequent lessons will be lead by IU’s Swing Dance Club from 8-9 p.m.

The Faculty Artists special exhibition will be open all night to be viewed by attendees; the show opened Jan. 25 and will continue until March 9. It features 38 artists, both current and past faculty members of IU’s Hope School of Fine Arts. Having seen the show once already, I look forward to seeing it again.

The event is also meant to be a Valentine’s Day pre-party. On the second level of the museum (in the atrium area), you will be able to make DIY Valentine’s day cards.

Food will be provided by Angles Cafe (the delicious coffee shop located on the second floor of the museum), Rainbow Bakery, and Blu Boy.
