Step into the light! The party of the year returns as the Wexner Center transforms into an all-night moveable feast for the eyes, taste buds, and, of course, booty. We'll dance all night to deep grooves by renowned Brooklyn-based DJ/remixer Sammy Bananas, enjoy scrumptious delights from over a dozen Dine Originals Columbus restaurants, and take in three dazzling exhibitions in our galleries: Christian Marclay’s The Clock (which will screen until the wee hours), Josiah McElheny's Towards a Light Club, and More American Photographs.
The VIP party in Mershon lobby starts the evening at 8 PM, with first crack at food, drink (plus a couple of complimentary ones), and making the scene.
Brooklyn producer and party maestro Sammy Bananas lives up to his name by crafting ecstatic tracks that ditch trendy production tricks in favor of pure dance satisfaction. One of the first artists to join the influential Fool's Gold Records roster, he churns out remixes for such big names as Chromeo, Passion Pit and Kid Cudi while sculpting striking original tracks through his signature moniker and multiple side projects. Traveling often, Sammy has rocked dance floors in over 90 cities across the globe, sharing stages with the likes of A -Trak, Kenny Dope and Holy Ghost, each year expanding his reach while still returning to his favorite towns. Columbus DJs George Brazil, Jenny Arcade, and C.J. Townsend warm up the crowd prior to Sammy tonight, each bringing a blend of soulful, exotic beats sure to set the right mood.
