Act Up!” This Instagram-worthy graffiti on the Berlin Wall in the Newseum captures the spirit of everything we love about free expression. Join us this November, as Art Soiree collaborates with Newseum for their last Newseum Nights of the year, a wildly entertaining after-hours spectacle you won’t want to miss, featuring artistic performances throughout the night!
‐ Stomp it out with a powerful and entertaining performance by Dem’ Raider Boyz Step Squad, the #1 all-male step team in the DMV.
‐ Put speech in the hands of the The Haiku Guys and Gals, creating one-of-a-kind haikus on the spot
‐ Dance to the beat of your own drum during our glow-in-the-dark silent disco powered by Silent Dance Society with DJ Moosic, DJ Electr0x, and DJ Eric
‐ Let the creativity flow with live mural painting from Michael Hammond, Maria Briskman “Square With Me” live intuitive personality portraits, and powerful art installations from amazing local artists including Lorenzo Cardim, MASRAE, Samantha Tranfa, Shanna Lim and ISAGUS
‐ Snack on fun finger food stations (popcorn chicken, tater tots and a popcorn bar) and fill up at our open beer and wine bar. Enjoy a craft beer tasting station with seasonal brews from Flying Dog Brewery, our exclusive beer sponsor for the evening
‐ Grab a front row seat to special programming on vulgarity in advertising with James Caruso, CEO of Flying Dog Brewery and the 1st Amendment Society, as well as gallery talks from the Newseum curatorial team
