It was okay. I had to skip out early so didn't get the full affect.

Enjoyed hearing the different perspectives about the photo's from participants, things that had not occurred to me made the photographs more interesting.

Very interesting to hear about the history of the museum. Enjoyed thinking about how labels help us to see art differently.

Great movie. Discussion, not so much. Venue...just unnecessarily basic. Why not have them in the art history classrooms?

Cool use of video on the walkway at the Museum entrance. The food was terrific, great drink options, Ephoria entertained, interesting artistic performances and fun games and activities throughout WCMA! I always have a good time, see something new and explore the art in a different way when I go to WCMA at Night. If you haven't gone yet, you need to--never a dull moment!

Nia Love's dance installation was a real treat! Excellent food and drink (but too close to the doors!) Mediatative Drawing was relaxing and eye-opening! Good fun sharing experience with others attending! Wish there had been two opportunities for Planetarium show! Frosted star sugar cookies a personal fav! Let's do this again in January and get the dance party off the ground for real!
