Art after Dark replaces the formal “lecture” format normally associated with museums with interdisciplinary activities, such as a creative talk coupled with a volunteer-led hands-on activity, film screening, spoken word poetry slam, or musical performance. The evening gatherings have a relaxed atmosphere that encourages engaging conversation. All activities are completely free of charge.
Through the Art after Dark Creative Gatherings series, LCVA provides a welcoming forum to interact creatively with others in the community within a social setting. “With Art after Dark, we have created and nurtured a sense of belonging and place, especially among students,” said LCVA’s executive director, Rachel Talent Ivers.
