From the National Gallery of Art:
“National Gallery Nights return this fall, offering lively, multi-sensory and themed programs in the East Building after hours on the second Thursday of September, October and November.
The program runs from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and features the myriad experiences that define National Gallery nights, including live performances, artistic creations, music, and contextual lectures. As with all National Gallery programs, the event is free; light meals and drinks are available for purchase.
Registration is required and opens one week in advance at noon via nga.gov/nights. For the first time, a limited number of passes will be available online at 10:00 a.m. on the morning of each event, and a few additional passes will be available at the door – first come, first served – from 5:30 a.m. pm
Anyone interested in attending National Gallery Nights can sign up to receive email notifications when registration opens for each event.

DJ Heat provides the evening’s soundtrack, spinning a selection of pop and hip-hop hits.

Join us for a night of thrills and chills. Wear your best art-inspired costume, do the “Monster Mash” with DJ RBI, and try not to scream at a movie screening with a live score presented by SHAOLIN JAZZ’s Can I Kick It? series. This ode to Halloween also includes amazing pop-up performances and spooky gallery talk.
Opening of registrations on November 3 at noon
