For the first time ever, CITY 2016’s featured designer will be the subject of a three-month-long retrospective exhibition leading up to the main event.

Silent Disco

October 22, 2016

The Friends of the Tampa Museum of Art are pleased to announce the return of Silent Disco on October 22, 2016, from 8-11pm.

Join us for a fun evening where guests put on wireless noise-canceling headphones, and tap into 3 different music channels. As they switch between the channels, their headsets will light up with a designated color for each playlist so they can easily tell what other attendees are dancing and listening to. Those without the headphones hear no music, giving the effect of a room full of people dancing to nothing. Cash bar and Sono Café food for purchase.

Advance tickets: Members $25 | Not-Yet-Members $35

Tickets at door: Members $25 | Not-Yet-Members $40

 

Proceeds from this event support K-12 student educational visits to the Tampa Museum of Art. Many Hillsborough County schools lack the funds necessary to provide transportation to and from the Museum for educational tours of our world-class exhibitions. Funds raised at the Silent Disco will fund our grants program on a first come, first served basis for Hillsborough County Schools.
