Neighborhood Nights Block Party

August 9, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT


Everyone’s invited to the Gardner for Neighborhood Nights, a series of fun and free interactive evenings for you and your family. Enjoy music, performance, food trucks, cash bar, gallery games, and hands-on creative experimentation inside the Museum and out.


Evans Way Park // 5-9 pm
Fun flows from the Museum into Evans Way Park for an interactive evening featuring Intervention: Ocean Blues by Laura Anderson Barbata with the Brooklyn Jumbies stilt dancers in oceanic, bioluminescent, sculptural wearables. Afro-Caribbean percussion by Tempo International Rhythm Section scores a Dances of Resistance movement workshop led by Marsha Parrilla, exploring the power of movement to challenge the status quo, create new paradigms, and uplift the spirit. Enjoy lawn games, metalsmithing projects, and performers from Chez-Vous Roller Rink.

Inside the Museum // 5-9 pm
Join artist Silvia López Chavez in the Bertucci Education Studio, songwriter and violinist Josh Knowles‘s single release celebration in Calderwood Hall, a stone-carving demo in the Jordan Garden with David Baird of Metalwerx, rune readings in the Tapestry Room with healer Luana Morales, music, and games throughout the galleries.

At sundown, keep the party going and head around the block for more free neighborhood fun ​with MFA Film’s Sunset Cinema on the Huntington Avenue lawn.
