After Hours @ the Burke

Posted by: Rebecca Durkin

On the evening of Oct. 4, the Burke opened its doors to 1000 UW students for a party like our museum has never seen before. With DJs Introcut and Kamui from Fourthcity, yummy food by Blue C Sushi, a screening of The Host, and access to exhibits all through the night, students had the chance to take over our usually quiet space and make it their own.

The results:

We're doing it again on Thurs., Nov. 1, 7-9 pm, with a Wild West theme, inspired by our Yellowstone to Yukon exhibit. Hot cider, a screening of Grizzly Man, music by DJ Nominal I... this event promises to be more intimate than the first, but every bit as great. UW student ID is required for entrance.

Art more your thing? Our friends over at the Henry are throwing a student party that same night, 5-8 pm. There's even time to start at the Henry and make it over to the Burke for the 8:30 movie screening!
