The Big Bang Bash - Henry Art Gallery
The Henry Art Gallery is celebrating its 80th year. The Big Bang Bash, held on May 18, 2007, was one of the events marking that milestone. Both the Henry and the big bang theory of the universe debuted in 1927.
More than 800 people attended the party, 200 works of art were sold and entertainment was provided by DJ Riz Rollins; Sarah Rudinoff, Nick Garrison and their band, Sissyfist; and the Vis-à-Vis Society collected data in their Math Lab and performed the results in song, dance and poetry.
The Bash included three walls of art for sale.
