Back to School

September 12, 6:00–9:00 p.m.
East Building

School is back in session during the Gallery’s first after-hours event of the fall. Relive your best (or worst) school dance memories with classic summer jams by DJ Heat, draw a Picasso-inspired portrait, and take a spin on the NGA trivia wheel. Pop-up talks explore elements of art, while Tracy Wilson and Holly Frey, hosts of the hit podcast Stuff You Missed in History Class, look at the lesser-known history of the color blue during a live show.
