EVENT REGISTRATION IS FULL BUT THEY POSTED ON FB THIS MORNING WALK-INs ARE WELCOME. Let's check out the Happy Hour and Dance Party at the Smithsonian Arts + Industries Building to celebrate the closing of the FUTURES Exhibit. This event is FREE! The Happy Hour goes from 5-7pm and the Dance Party is from 7-11pm. From the website:

"On July 6, we’ll open the doors to FUTURES one last time for an epic bash worthy of the next millennia. We’d love it if you joined us to celebrate the endless possibilities of tomorrow".

FUTURES Happy Hour: 5 to 7 PM

As we transition into the evening, the entire building will come alive with special performances from Washington, D.C.-based artists set within unique spaces throughout exhibition. From illusionists to spoken word poets to brass bands, these performers push the limits of creative expression and welcome visitors to experience FUTURES one last time in a new, immersive way.

The Future of Dance Party: 7 to 11 PM

The grand finale, an indoor/outdoor neon-soaked dance party, begins at 7 p.m. Guests are encouraged to wear their most vibrant neon-best outfits inspired by FUTURES and dance the Wednesday away with DJ mOma. Special guests include ballerina, TED fellow, and award-winning robotics engineer Catie Cuan, June’s Futurist-in-Residence, and her dancing robots, debuting a new choreographed performance to inspire audiences to move their bodies in new and transformative ways. The entire exhibition will be open late—one final chance to test, try, delight, debate the innovations and ideas on view. An out-of-this-world the balloon drop ends the night to send everyone off into the world renewed and ready for what’s next. Future-inspired cocktails and beverages will be available thanks to the expert mixologists.
