Underground Art After Dark – Featuring Soul Trouvére
Saturday, September 30 from 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm$20 – $25
A Night at the Museum. Art that Resists Oppression. Live Music by Soul Trouvére.
Saturday, September 30 | 7:00 – 10:00 PM
Join us after-hours and explore Leningrad Underground, an exhibition that delves into the reclusive world of Leningrad’s unofficial art scene, a microcosm of free thought and artistic experimentation amidst the heavily censored Soviet universe of constraints and taboos. Challenging the official, and highly restrictive framework for creativity, unofficial artists claimed the right to unconditional self-expression. Freedom came with a price: dissenters were denied access to public exposure and cultural infrastructure. Obstacles notwithstanding, nonconformist artists pursued their individual choices with passion and resolve, sharing their discoveries with a close-knit circle of friends and supporters.
Featuring the incredible music of Soul Trouvére right in the Main Gallery (8:00 – 9:30 PM), you’ll be inspired to dance, wander, shop, and imbibe.
This event is 21+. Drinks will be available for purchase. Food trucks will be available outside the Museum to fuel your evening if you wish.
All galleries and TMORA shop will be open for viewing, perusing, and shopping. Doors will open at 6:45 PM. Free parking available across the street in the Mayflower Church parking lot. Street parking is also available.
TICKETS: General Admission $25 | TMORA Members $20
