Off the Grid
VIP | 8–9 PM
General admission | 9 PM–1:30 AM
The contemporary art party of the season returns for its sixth incarnation in May—and at the close of our 25th anniversary celebration. Join us as we look back to our beginnings in 1989 and look forward to a night of fun.
Sample delicious bites from some of the best restaurants in town, and enjoy music from DJ Lance (The Remix on CD102.5), Giant Claw (sound collage/experimental electronic), and headliner Lauren Flax (of electronic duo CREEP). The Brooklyn-based DJ, songwriter, and producer (called “one of our favorite DJs” by VICE) will reign over the dance floor with her signature atmospheric grooves.
VIP passes get you early access to food, drinks (plus a couple of free ones), a performance choreographed by Nico Garlo (Nicole Garlando), and more.
Best of all, you’ll be doing good while you have a great time, as all proceeds benefit Wexner Center education programs for children and youth. Get your tickets now before prices increase—and before they’re gone! (And don't forget: Wexner Center members receive $10 off any ticket. Not a member? Join here.)
Going to the Rolling Stones at the Ohio Stadium? We’ll give you a lift to Off the Grid! A free shuttle bus will run between Mershon Auditorium and the turnaround behind the RPAC 7:30–9:30 PM and 11:15 PM–1:45 AM, and no reservations are required to ride. Still don’t have your Off the Grid tickets? Show your Rolling Stones ticket stub at the Patron Services desk and receive a discount off your Off the Grid ticket purchase!
