Inspired by Harajuku, Tokyo underground, Japanese pop art, and Shimokitazawa, the cutting-edge fashion districts of the city, the 2015 Contemporaries Bash celebrates Tokyo’s nightlife in one spectacular evening of cocktails, music, food, fashion, and dancing. The evening will include:
- Open premium bar with Japanese-inspired cocktails
- DJ Ben Chang
- Gaming stations with Super Smash Bros, Street Fighter, Minecraft, and Mario Kart
- Taiko drummer
- Snocream Truck
- Fashion lounge with two-way mirror photo booth
- and much more!
The Annual Gala and Contemporaries Bash raise critical resources for the museum’s award-winning education programs that inspire creativity, foster a greater understanding of our world, and provide lifelong learning experiences for children, teachers, and families in the Washington, DC, community and across the country. The Phillips Collection pushes the boundaries of K–12 education with the development of the PrismK12, a teaching framework to support teachers of any subject as they develop arts-integrated lessons and curricula.
