Game Show Opening Party for the Public Property Exhibition

Saturday, June 23, 2012
07:30 PM–09:30 PM
Game Show Opening Party for the Public Property Exhibition

Whose show is it anyway? Join an amusing and unusual opening event for Public Property—the participatory summer exhibition at the Walters that invites your decisions and contributions. We’re kicking off the exhibition with a grand game show in our auditorium. Inspired by reality television game shows of the past and present, our show will feature the artworks as “contestants”, where the winner is determined by the audience and a panel of celebrity judges, including co-creator and producer of WYPR’s The Signal Aaron Henkin, musician/performer Shodekeh and artist Denise Tassin. Host Karl Marks performance artist, comedian and game show fanatic will lead us through this exciting evening!

The fabulous celebrity judges and amazing exhibition are not the only reason to come to the Walters that evening. Cazbar and The Wild Dog food trucks will be parked along Centre Street serving delicious delicacies for purchase. Inside, Rye Baltimore will be at the museum serving a variety of hand crafted cocktails and alcoholic beverages, including Baltimore’s beer, Natty Boh. The famous Mr. Boh will be on hand to help celebrate all of the festivities, including Baltimore band, Yeveto, playing in the museum’s café!
