▬▬▬▬ ABOUT lOOM ▬▬▬▬
For a decade loom has manifested as a dance event where people of many colors, orientations and ages gather to celebrate life & music. From its original home of España Tapas Bar in Benson, to various one-offs at institutions such as Bemis Center & Love's Jazz & Art Center, loom has served as a positive social medium for bringing people together. In 2011 loom moved into House of Loom - a lounge & nightclub concept with a focus on music and dance.
▬▬▬▬ MUSEUM ENTRY ▬▬▬▬
The entire Museum, including Memorial Building, will be open and free until 6 pm. The pavilion galleries (new building - Modern & Contemporary collections) will be open and free until 9 pm. Anybody wishing to see the Sheila Hicks exhibition must obtain a ticket, and tickets for general public adults are $5 (discounted price for this event). Members and kids ages 17 and younger and college students with ID can see the show for free. We'll offer guided tours of the exhibition.
