Join us on the first Friday evening of each month for an ever-changing mix of art, music, and mingling. MIX is an 18 and over event.

MIX: Vision
Friday, September 4
5:00–10:00 p.m., OUTSIDE!

Discover modern masterpieces, pop-culture trivia, and wry humor in Gloria: Robert Rauschenberg & Rachel Harrison, the first exhibition to pair Rauschenberg’s iconic combines with the sculpture of visionary artist Rachel Harrison.

Take in the last days of summer outside on the museum’s south terrace as you grab a drink and dance the night away to the lightning-fast rhythms of Nigérien rock stars Tal National, whose openhearted vision fuses the cultural and musical stylings of Niger’s various ethnic populations.

Tal National

  • Make It! Combines
