If you thought that our post on the Hirshhorn After Hours was interesting, then perhaps this event may find you well.  On Thursday night, the Freer and Sackler Galleries will be hosting a similar event called Asia After Dark, Tibetan Twilight.  You can enjoy music via DJ Chris Linux or see Tsewang Yangzom perform traditional Tibetan songs, while also taking in the artwork of Gonkar Gyatso with a drink in your hand.

Interesting note:  The suggested attire for the event is to wear blue, red, white, green, and yellow – all significant colors in Tibetan Buddhist culture.

Asia After Dark will be held at the Sackler Gallery on Thursday from 6:30 – 10:30 PM.

Since moving to DC in 2007 to get an MFA in Interior Design, her eyes can’t seem to be peeled away from the beautiful things in this city.
