The party just keeps getting better!
Purim Pandemonium 2011 (this past Saturday) hit a new high this year with over 160 attendees (closer to 170 when you count in the staff, and since we had as much fun as anyone, I say we count.)
The lead up to Purim Pandemonium took a lot out of us. With a theme like “Heroes & Villains” it’s impossible to do anything in a subtle way. We went big with the décor, filling our event space with scenic flats depicting the places where heroes and villains could do their best….or their worst.
But the work was worth it. The JMM was transformed.
Every kind of hero and villain showed up:
a couple of Batmans to take care of the abundance of villains,
a visitor from a galaxy far, far away,
and less obvious characters.
The JMM hosted cowboys and devils, Quailman and numerous masked robbers, Ms. Frizzle and “Innocent Bystanders,” not to mention Daria and Abby Sciuto.
If the endless dancing was any indication everyone had a good time. At one point the crowd even broke into a coordinated dance routine….well mostly coordinated….
Everyone also had the opportunity to see our current art exhibition “Loring Cornish: In Each Other’s Shoes.”
We took the groans of despair when we turned off the music at the end of the night as another indication that everyone had a good time.
And the best part is that the good times don’t end here. Instead of waiting for Purim Pandemonium 2012, we will be holding a series of young adult programs starting in July. http://www.jewishmuseummd.org/youngadult Check it out!
