The museum that brought you Neo-Crocker and the Warhol Factory Party is stoked to announce Prom 2017, a 90s-themed night of spiked punch, wallflowers, and cummerbunds. Featuring arms-length-apart dancing, a VIP lounge, and chance to replace those embarrassing prom photos from years past. Dig out that too-small tuxedo and iridescent dress, and rock out to DJ Epik and Dog Rifle at this inaugural fundraiser supporting community arts engagement. Hair bar, late-night bites, dessert, and throwbacks included. VIP ticket holders will have access to a private lounge and unlimited hosted bar. General admission includes one drink ticket.

Important note: PEAR CIDER AND CIGARETTES, one of the five nominees, will be the last film in the program. An inventively animated first-person narration about a troubled friendship, there’s violence, language, sex, and drug use in it, and it’s not appropriate for children. We’ll have a Parental Guidance warning prior to this short, so that parents and caregivers can usher children out of the theater if they’d like. Other than PEAR CIDER AND CIGARETTES, the program is acceptable for kids.
