The Textile Museum will host its second after-hours “PM @ The TM” event on Wednesday, August 18, 6-9 p.m.—this time titled “Mod Madness” and in the spirit of Mad Men to coincide with its current exhibit of textile designs from the ’50s and ’60s. Step into the museum’s garden for cool drinks, noshes and live jazz by the Pete Muldoon Quartet. Escape the heat with gallery tours led by WE ARE SCIENCE and music by DJ Jahsonic in the exhibition Art by the Yard: Women Design Mid-Century Britain and enter to win prizes from area businesses and restaurants. Silk screen your own t-shirt or bag to take home with the Washington Printmakers Gallery. D.C.’s most fashionable will be on hand to nominate the “best mid-century dressed” – so show us your best fedoras, swing skirts and mod shifts!
Fee: $10 (includes two drink tickets/Textile Museum members; one drink ticket/non-members). Advance tickets recommended; purchase online here.
Presented in partnership with The Pink Line Project. Bring your wristband to The Front Page after the event to receive $2.50 cocktails. Prizes donated by PS7, Teaism, Farmers & Fishers, Eat & Smile and FRESHFARM Markets. Furniture provided by Design Within Reach.
