For this installment of the MIA's Third Thursday, literary magazine and publisher Paper Darts will be bringing local writing to the museum. Guests will be able to experience the excitement of the written word as a "Choose Your Own Adventure" game gets them wandering the galleries, propelled by stories written by Ed Bok Lee, John Jodzio, Maggie Ryan Sandford, and Katie Heaney. Jennifer Davis will invite folks to play with art, as she will be presenting her Exquisite Corpse interactive mural. Meanwhile, Allen Brewer will be listening to revelers describe museum works. He will then translate those descriptions into visual arts pieces that will be displayed eventually in the MAEP galleries. Even the museum elevator will be exciting, as the always entertaining Theater of Public Policy will be telling stories on rides between floors. There will be a cash bar to make the lively event even more lively, and hip-hop duo Kill the Vultures will be on hand to provide tunes.
