Art Event: Art After Dark, Oceanside Museum of Art
The Art after Dark event held annually at the Oceanside Museum of Art was one the most fun I ever had at an art event. It was held on Friday, April 15th, at the Oceanside Museum of Art and cost about twenty dollars to come in and see the exhibits. With the 20 dollar entrance fee however, you are entitled to unlimited alcoholic beverages provided by the museum and great food! The most interesting art event was in a dark room and artist portrayed some of their finest work with ultraviolet paint and displayed them in the dark. It was unique in the fact that I never had the oppurtunity to view art in that way before and it opened up a new medium of fine art that I never would have imagined myself. The alcohol made it easier for everyone to converse about the art pieces and in return, made everyone feel a lot more friendly than at other art places where everyone is encouraged to stay quiet. It was a party in a museum with art work that was not readily available, and only on display for that night. It was an experience like no other.
