First Thursday: Art After Hours

Are you missing out on the finer things in life because you live a dismal 9-5 existence? You can either start a club, or check out the Phoenix Art After Hours party. On the first Thursday of each month, the Wadsworth Atheneum opens its doors from 5-8pm for the Hartford socialites to mingle, drink and check out the latest exhibits. This month's party includes admission into Digging Deeper, a reinterpretation of works from the Amistad Center for Art & Culture by artists Willie Cole and Hank Willis Thomas. The evening also includes live music, a cash bar and a lecture by UHart alum Mark Dion, who creates works incorporating found objects from excavation sites. The evening's finale is a showing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, so don't forget to pack your leather chaps that day.

Admission is $5. The party starts at 5pm and the movie is at 8:30pm. The full schedule can be found here.
