Let’s paint the town as Purim Pandemonium 2014 sees Art Come to Life!
Saturday, March 15th at 9:00 p.m.
Tickets: $15 members, $20 non-members, click HERE to purchase!
This is your chance to release your inner artist t the sky is the limit. Turn yourself into a Pollock or a Warhol! Style yourself after Dali or Kahlo! Take a turn as Mr. Van Gogh (though please, don’t go too method on this one)!
Once you’ve started getting creative you won’t want to stop - so help us fill out empty canvases at the Museum! You will be surrounded by inspiration and by the end of the night we’ll have created an art show no one will forget!
Party-goers over age 21 (I.D required) can enjoy DJ Matt Statler, an open bar (essential for any struggling artist?) and refreshments.
GETTING TO THE EVENT:
Did you know the Charm City Circulator has a Jewish Museum of Maryland stop (it’s on the orange line)? It’s a great, free way to get down to the Museum for Purim Pandemonium! Then, just grab a cab home at the end of the night.
Here are the numbers for a few Baltimore Cab Companies:
- Baltimore Taxi Company (Baltimore City) – 410-327-7777
- Checker Cab – 410-685-1212
- Yellow Transportation Cab Co. (Baltimore City) – 410-685-1212
There is also plenty of free street parking around the Museum – but remember to drink responsibly if you’ll be driving yourself home!
Many thanks to our event partners:
