GenWex Presents

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

Sat, Mar 8, 2014 8 PMSun, Mar 9, 2014 1:30 AM

The contemporary art party of the season returns for its fifth (and best) incarnation, this year inspired by the tropical sights, sounds, and rhythms of our exhibition Cruzamentos: Contemporary Art in Brazil. Sample delicious bites from local restaurants—including Dine Originals Columbus spots—and feast on the hot-buttered soul of Nick Tolford & Company, plus the beats of George Brazil. Brooklyn DJ Cosmo Baker—“New York's best and most exciting party-rocking DJ”—brings it all home.

VIP passes get you early access to food, drinks (plus a couple of free ones), an exclusive tasting of OYO spirits, and more. Get your tickets now before they’re all gone.

Proceeds benefit Wexner Center education programs for children and youth.
