Gene Davis, Hot Beat

Hot Beat Dance Party
Saturday, November 19, 2016
8:00–11:00 p.m.




Celebrate our newest exhibition, Gene Davis: Hot Beat with an evening of drinks and dancing inspired by the artist's colorful, rhythmic stripe paintings. Tickets ($60) are on sale until 5 p.m. Friday, November 18.

  • Enjoy tours of the exhibition
  • Sip hand-crafted classic cocktails
  • Groove to 1960s favorites spun on vinyl by DJ Harry Hotter
  • Strike a pose in the photo booth against your favorite Gene Davis painting
  • Challenge your friends to a GIANT game of Operation, tie yourself in knots over Twister, and illuminate the night with the largest Lite Brite you've ever seen with our life-size vintage board games
  • Savor a buffet of delicious retro-inspired party fare (Glazed ham, meatloaf, deviled eggs, wedge salad, grilled cheese, and more!)
  • 60s attire encouraged (but optional)!

At the party we'll also say farewell to SAAM’s director, Betsy Broun, who is retiring after nearly 30 years.


Valet parking is included.
