In honor of the US Constitution and our free exhibition We the People: The Radical Notion of Democracy, we’re hosting a museum-wide, evening celebration inspired by Hamilton: An American Musical. Bring a date, friends, or the whole family and enjoy a night of art- and musical-inspired fun, complete with artmaking, music, and special live performances by Broadway actor Paul Oakley Stovall, who currently stars as George Washington on the Angelica North American Tour.
So whether you’re 8 or 80, don’t throw away your shot to see original prints of the nation’s founding documents and celebrate their legacy with creative fun—you deserve a night out.
Performances begin at 6, 7, and 8 p.m.
