Third Thursday: Afrofuturism

Join us for an evening curated by theater artist Junauda Alma Petrus featuring performances, visual art, and art-making activities focused on Afrofuturism. Afrofuturism is the reimagining of a future filled with arts, science and technology seen through a black lens. (Read more about it here.) 

If you’d like to experience “Egypt’s Sunken Cities,” presented by U.S. Bank, during this event, we strongly recommend you reserve your tickets in advance. During this specific Third Thursday (2/21, from 6-9 p.m.), free My Mia tickets are available online and a small number will be held for on-site visitors as well. These will sell out quickly. Not a My Mia member? Not a problem! You can join at any level – including FREE – online to receive access to this special  Third Thursday offer, or give us a call at 612.870.3000 to join and reserve your tickets today!

And a friendly reminder – the Third Thursday event itself (art-making, gallery activations, performances, and tours) as well as general admission to the museum are always free and open to the public! We only require tickets for special exhibitions.
