Art After Dark
A Bright New Year
5 – 9 pm Griswold House
Join us for a sparkling night at the Museum and celebrate the start of a brand new year of art and exploration! The evening will feature a special live music performance by Sky Sabin, early evening guided tours for children and late night "Insomniac Tours" for adults, an all-ages scavenger hunt of the Museum's permanent collection, hands-on crafts, libations and light refreshments.
Special this night - discover the power of the earth and the gemstones it creates, learn their attributes, sources and uses, in an informal discussion with fine jeweler Tiffany Peay. Then ponder the vastness of the universe with Skyscrapers, Inc, Rhode Island's amateur astronomical society. They'll train their high powered telescopes at the wide sky above so visitors may observe the waxing crescent Moon, the beautiful open cluster, the Pleiades, and other deep sky objects and constellations, while learning their related myths.
Dress warmly and follow the luminaria for a magical night at the Museum.
Admission is free.
