The 2nd Annual Muse Masquerade | 21c Museum Hotel | Arts | Indy Week


The 2nd Annual Muse Masquerade

When: Fri., Oct. 14, 8 p.m.-12 a.m. 2016



The announcement of an art organization's annual fundraising gala is often rightfully met with a weary roll of the eyes. But not so for the always-innovative Carrack Modern Art, whose first Muse Masquerade last fall was one of the soirees of the season, taking over the ballroom of 21c Museum Hotel for a night of costumes, dancing, and pop-up performances. In its second year, Muse Masquerade has everything from its first year with an added dash of cabaret, in performances by The VaudeVillain Revue and Shasta Kola. Beyond the ballroom, 21c's galleries will be filled with pop-up art and sound experiences by Little Green Pig Theatrical Concern, Culture Mill, Ginger Wagg & Wild Actions, and others. Impromptu poems, portraits, and tarot readings can be had from The Poetry Fox, Tony Waldron, and Jameela Davis or Philip Young, respectively. Lose yourself in a scavenger hunt or dig into the dance floor with live music by the likes of The Boulevard Ensemble and Shirlette Ammons. And be sure to dress to impress, whether that means black tie, pink tutu, domino mask, or whatever fanciness you fancy. —Brian Howe
