The event features a bevy of fun and exciting activities and events, and is a great opportunity to check out the Henry’s latest exhibitions, including the video installation by Michelle Handelman in the the upper galleries, “Irma Vep: The Last Breath.”

Visitors can look forward to a perfume workshop led by Saskia Wilson-Brown of the Los Angeles-based Institute for Art and Olfaction, as well as a performance by Seattle-based soul-hip-hop-electronica masterminds Fly Moon RoyaltyAn ArtBreak, led by a local artist, will also be on the agenda, providing visitors with a deeper understanding and experience of the current exhibitions at the Henry Art Gallery. Kick off your weekend with this energetic and artistic crowd.

Henry Members are invited to a special happy hour from 7 to 8 pm.

Tickets are free for members, $12 for students and $20 for general admission. Tickets can be purchased here.
