Join us for PAFA After Dark on Thursday evenings for a night of fun, flavor and friendship, where you can experience the magic of PAFA's art and atmosphere under the provocative blanket of night. Drink a cocktail, revel in live music, explore new exhibitions and make new art and new friends - all with a different theme each month.

America's first museum is the newest form of fun...bring a date and find out why.
June 2, 2011: Wanderlust


  Our June 2nd event will get you primed for your summer adventures with great music and great art at one of this country's oldest and most esteemed fine art shows - the Annual Student Exhibition. DJ Shawn Ryan spins a whimsical playlist all night, digging deep into his collection to bring music that will spark your sense of adventure and send your imagination whirling off into the sunset. Or learn how to make hand-made travel journals with 2010 Art in the Open Artist Maria Anasazi and help create a fantastical landscape that your mind lusts to wander into. We'll also be awarding an After Dark People's Choice Award to one of the students in the show, so come prepared to look, listen, argue, assess and eventually, cast your ballot. Works in the Annual Student Exhibition are also for sale, so don't miss your last chance to buy the work of the next generation of great American artists.
