A Tribute to Japanese Art and Fashion

The Freer and Sackler Galleries present the first Asia After Dark of 2011 with a deep awareness of the tragic events that have unfolded in Japan and offer fervent wishes for the safety, recovery, and well-being of our Japanese friends.

Join us for an evening of tribute to the magnificent art and fashion of Japan. View Japanese art in the galleries, then create and send messages of hope to friends and family in Japan. Enjoy dance beats by the legendary DJ Steve Aoki and DJ Cassidy Karakorn, as well as sake cocktails and sushi bites. Interact with models wearing Harajuku fashions. Contribute wishes of well-being to a group poetry project and watch as it transforms throughout the night.

Asia After Dark will host a give-by-text rally to benefit Japanese earthquake victims.

August 29 marked the fifth anniversary of the day Hurricane Katrina struck the Gulf Coast.

Paying tribute to the residents who struggled through the disaster, Tony Award-winning Shirley Knight and Kerry Washington lead a cast of performers in Swimming Upstream, a moving theatrical piece directed by Eve Ensler (Vagina Monologues) that retells the Katrina experiences of 16 female survivors.

The two-night-only production comes to the Mahalia Jackson Theater for Performing Arts in New Orleans on September 10 and New York’s Apollo Theater on September 13.

Tickets start at $25. ticketmaster.com
