ArtJamz now amuses families too!

05 Dec

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

On Sunday, December 5, Art Jamz held its second art session for families with kids. Who, if not the kids, can better “unleash their inner artists”! In a spacey industrial loft (where else they can release their energy running around without being told to calm down and sit still?), inspired by artsy surroundings, music spins by DJ Neekola, yummy snacks and drinks, and city overlooks, they created wildly and fearfully! The atmosphere is so comfortable and addictive,  even before finishing you regret it happens so soon and you want to come back again!

Happy family with their creations

All access Holiday party at Newseum: 3000 people and counting!

04 Dec

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

If Newseum building was a bit smaller, it would explode on Friday! More than THREE THOUSAND people thronged in for a Holiday party which, no word is too big to express it, was HUGE success and went on even later than it was planned (who would want to leave such fabulous party, considering a whole weekend ahead with no alarm clocks!) The event was brought as a partnership of Newseum and BYT. Seems like after-hours museum parties become a beautiful tradition and bring lots of excitement into the public. There are some people who are strictly nightlife fellas and have no chance to see museum expositions since they are only open at daytime. That kind of events broad up the access and take whole museum visiting to a new level.

Just for $15 ticket you could get:

* Exclusive after-hours access to the Newseum — a dazzling, high-tech roller-coaster ride through 500 years of headline history including Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalism, the Berlin Wall and exciting galleries, theaters and interactives
* Autorock DJ
* Cash bar with specialty cocktails and holiday treats available for purchase
* An unveiling of a very special photo installation by BYT photographers featuring some of our favorite D.C. faces and characters of 2010
* Christmas At Ground Zero – A book talk from Tad Daley, author of Apocalypse Never: Forging the Path to a Nuclear Weapon-Free World.
* Exciting films, merriment, mistletoe and more!
* And most importantly, full access to the following Newseum exhibits:

* Berlin Wall Gallery
* Athlete: The Sports Illustrated Photography of Walter Iooss
* G-Men & Journalists: Top News Stories of the FBI’s First Century
* Pulitzer Prize Photographs Gallery
* Interactive Newsroom and Ethics Center

Enjoy the pictures.
