DECEMBER 19, 2017 — Hudson River Museum is launching a unique evening event series celebrating art, science, and music. The inaugural HRM After Dark will take place on Friday, January 19, 7 to 10pm, geared toward 21-39 year olds with a dance party featuring DJ NessDigital, craft beer, light hors-d’oeuvres, cosmic travel with shows in the Planetarium, maverick gallery tours, and more. Tickets are $35 for HRM members, and $40 for non-members. Admission to HRM After Dark includes two drinks. All guests must be 21+; valid ID required for entry. For tickets and info, visit: hrm.org/afterdark. On social media, follow #HRMAfterDark on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
“The Hudson River Museum embraces diverse voices and artistic and scientific discovery,” said Masha Turchinsky, Director. “We’re thrilled to launch #HRMAfterDark, a new series that is as fresh, creative, and social as this dynamic generation of culture seekers we’re seeing in the community.” This event is the first in a series; additional events will be held in April and October 2018. The series is sponsored by Simone Development Companies and Westchester Magazine; the January 19th event has additional support from Fortina, Yonkers Brewing Company, and Doc’s Draft Hard Cider.
HRM After Dark is presented by the HRM Contemporaries Council, a dynamic new group of dedicated young professionals who champion diverse perspectives to enrich the collective experience at the HRM. The members hail from throughout Westchester and New York City, and bring new ideas from a range of industries including art, architecture, education, film, marketing, food and wine, publishing, and real estate.
Katherine Han, a member of the newly-formed Council, who involved in the local cultural community, added, “For so long, we felt as if we needed to go to New York City for these kind of social experiences. That’s all changing in Yonkers and throughout Westchester. We’ve got creative critical mass now and we’re excited to see that the HRM champions us as part of a new wave.”
Proceeds from #HRMAfterDark will support educational programs and exhibitions at the Museum.
The Hudson River Museum is open Wednesday-Sunday, 12-5pm.
