GenWex Presents

Programs developed by and for the Wexner Center's young patrons' group.

Sat, Mar 12, 2016 8 PMSun, Mar 13, 2016 1:30 AM

Join the center’s young patrons group as they take over the Wex and turn up the heat for the contemporary art party of the season, inspired by the stunning work of Noah Purifoy. Enjoy bites from some of the best restaurants in town as local favorite Kenny Lectro (BeatOracle.net WCRS) and Heatwave's DJ Adam Scoppa start the party in Mershon, then scorch the dance floor in the Performance Space to the sounds of BEARCAT and UMFANG (both of the female-identified DJ collective Discwoman) and the sizzling visuals of PFM. The galleries will be open all night to take in the dazzling exhibition Noah Purifoy: Junk Dada.

Get early access to the party with a VIP ticket! We’ll greet you with a glass of bubbly and give you first crack at the bites and the bar (plus a couple of free drinks). You’ll also have the chance to meet UMFANG and BEARCAT during the VIP hour, before they take the stage in the Performance Space!

Best of all, you’ll be doing good while you have a great time: all proceeds benefit Wexner Center education programs for children and youth. This year’s Off the Grid is a hot ticket—be sure to get yours now before prices increase! And don’t forget: Wexner Center members receive $10 off any ticket, any time.
