Mixer & Party with Kaleidoscope Houston

Following the talk, the mixer hosted in collaboration with Kaleidoscope Houston begins at 7pm. The evening will feature entertainment combining art, film, music, fashion, and interactive elements, including the museum’s captivating exhibit BioRhythm: Music and the Body.

  • BioRhythm: Music and the Body – Imported from Science Gallery Dublin, BioRhythm allows you to feel how music moves your body. The interactive exhibit is collection of unique sonic experiences, installations, experiments and performances culled from musicians, engineers and neuroscientists from around the world. They include an acoustic bed, sonic tables, and experiments on your emotional response to pop music.
  • Art – There will be pop-up art displays and live art by Mark Arceneaux.
  • Film – The 90-minute film Miss Representation exposes how mainstream media and culture contribute to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America. The film draws back a curtain to reveal a glaring reality we live with every day but fail to see – how the media’s limited and often disparaging portrayals of women and girls makes it difficult for women to feel powerful and achieve leadership positions.
  • Music – There will be tunes from an all women DJ lineup, featuring DJs Angiesliste, Kay Illah and Gracie Chavez.
  • Fashion – Melodrama Boutique will showcase fashion for women of many different styles and sizes.

Complimentary drinks will be provided at the open bar, from Deep Eddy Vodka and Saint Arnold Brewing Company.

Food trucks Boombox Taco Truck and Food Music Life will be on hand, selling their tasty bites to hungry party-goers.
