MPA: RED IN VIEW (Assembly)

Sun, Feb 19, 2017  8 PM

Location: Floor Three, Susan and John Hess Family Theater

Assembly marks the dramatic finale of Orbit. Ending on a dissonant chord, this theatrical event marks the Orbiters’ exit, and orchestrates a culminating series of actions within a live environment by M. Cay Castagnetto (sound) and Maria Shaplin (lighting).

Assembly is movement IV of the four-part, unfolding exhibition MPA: RED IN VIEW, which includes an installation in the John R. Eckel, Jr. Foundation Gallery on the Museum’s first floor.

This event has reached ticketing capacity. A limited number of standby tickets may be available at the admissions desk on a first-come, first-served basis.

Doors open at 7:15 pm, and the exhibition MPA: RED IN VIEW will be on view on the Museum’s first floor. Ticket holders are guaranteed admission until the start of the program, at which time any unclaimed seats will be released. Tickets cannot be refunded or exchanged.
