Hack the Museum

January 23 @ 5pm

The Mobile Museum of Art is looking for a hack…
We know our art, all 10,000 objects, with hundreds of art pieces exhibited right now, but we don’t know you, and we’d like to bring both together in a way that’s mutually beneficial.

So, start the New Year off right. Come stroll the galleries to get inspired or come with an idea, January 23 and January 30, 2014, starting at 5 pm during Art 4850, and we will try to help make that idea a reality.

Consider how to combine the art on the walls of our galleries, with what you know, who you are, and what you (and all your friends) like to do. Then talk with the staff to create a program idea. We’d encourage you to work with us to develop the program, grow an audience, make relationships with our art and the community and create more programs. It’ll be new. It’ll be different. It’ll be cool!

Art 4850 opens the art museum and its galleries for an additional four hours on Thursday evenings free of charge and courtesy of the City of Mobile. Programs are presented in various arts disciplines: music, theater, film, design, visual arts, dance and literature. This educational and community outreach effort provides greater access to the arts for a broad and more diverse segment of the community.
