Art After Hours: Cirque du Wadsworth Block Party

The Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art partners with Cirque du Soleil and the XL Center to create a spectacular fantasy evening at August’s Art After Hours.

Thursday, August 4, 2011
5 – 9 pm
$10; Free for Members

Travelers Plaza
Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, 600 Main StreetHartfordCT 06103

Experience what it’s like to run away with the circus!  Immerse yourself amongst street performers as they awe and amuse the crowd. Become part of the show by getting your face painted “Cirque-style” by Amazing Face Art. As you wander through the various spectacles, be sure to keep a look out for Anne Cubberly’s costumes as they parade around the street. Stop by the bar and indulge in some refreshments, then rock out underneath the big top with the sounds of XY Eli Band as they fuse blues, funk and rap.  Don’t forget to catch the film Desert Flower at 8 pm in the theater.

Art After Hours takes place the first Thursday of every month. First Thursdays at the Wadsworth Atheneum offer a wide variety of programming - art, live music, cocktails, gallery talks, and films.
