5:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Expect a packed evening of fun as we open a new exhibition, host a brass band, feature a fire-eating magician, and transform our theater into a musical journey through a camera obscura.
At the Museum, we open our latest exhibition, the glass-plate vitreographs of Pilchuck Prints. You'll also have the opportunity to enjoy live music by the Hot Gumbo Brass Band, hands-on crafting at our make-and-take table, and fiery performances by MerMan's Comedy and Illusion Show.
Here's a breakdown of the night's events:
5 p.m. Doors open, enjoy a printmaking themed Make & Take (available while supplies last), cash bar opens
5:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m. Hot Gumbo Brass Band Plays in Huber Court
6:00 p.m. Fire Eating by MerMan's Comedy and Illusion Shows —doing outdoor fire eating and indoor walk around magic
8 p.m. Glass Studio Performs in the Kaufman Theater
10 p.m. Doors Close
The Glass Studio performance, moved to our Kaufman Theater because of mechanical work at the Studio, will be led by Hannah Kirkpatrick and will feature two exceptional musicians, Paul S. Kim on the violin and Ian Robinson on cello. Kirkpatrick calls the performance When Darkness Meets Light and it will use the principles of a camera obscura to tell a story of transformation.
Third Thursday is free for Museum Members and students with current ID, $5 for all others. Kaufman Theater seating is first-come, first-seated. Cash bar.
Third Thursday is generously sponsored by The Capital Group Companies and Virginia Natural Gas/AGL Resources.Import to Calendar Share
