MAM After Dark: NYC

Friday, August 16, 2019, 7 PM–11 PM

Presented by Northwestern Mutual

If you can make it here, you’ll make it anywhere. Throw on some old school denim, leather, or lace ups, and revel in the urban playground that inspired James Nares and the No Wave scene. In August, we’re bringing the streets and attitude of 1970s & 80s New York City into MAM, with graffiti art, hip hop, vinyl, street performers, and food trucks.

Evening Sponsor:  Educators Credit Union


All night fun:

  • Tours! Take to the streets of NYC inside Nares: Moves on not your average art tours led by our friends at Educators Credit Union.

  • Jam to your favorite ‘80s tunes, spun on vinyl by DJs Barry and J-Roc of WMSE.

  • Watch break dance performances by the Beat Boys from TRUE Skool, and tag a collaborative graffiti mural.

  • Dress up your old school look with DIY buttons, and shop the latest street styles from local vendors.

  • Snack on NYC staples, including pizza, sweet treats, and of course, bagels with schmear.

  • Plus so much more!
