Paint & Play with Light & Music

September 19 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm CDT

Join us for a drop-in painting activity for all ages featuring neon paint and live music. Using creative rhythms and lyrics of Kansas performer Maria the Mexican audience members will create visual compositions to be activated by black light to GLOW! The band, Maria the Mexican, features vocalist and guitarist Maria Cuevas who will perform two short acoustic sets during our event as part of Downtown Manhattan Maker Night.  Youth will be invited to participate as part of the musical performance by assisting with ‘percussive’ elements using found instruments. Upon completion all creators’ work will be digitally photographed and later compiled into a mini film as part of a temporary digital public display.

Bonus! MoA+L design staff will be on hand to demonstrate AR/VR, giving visitors as taste of the exciting technology the museum will showcase upon opening.
