MoMA PS1 is hosting a late-night closing party for its captivating outdoor art installation

If you didn't get as much culture in these past few months as you had hoped, it's not too late. MoMA PS1 is throwing an end of summer shindig on Thursday, August 31, which provides a good excuse to add one more museum trip to your summertime excursions. 

The Night at the Museum party's $15 tickets are available online to the public, and the event is free to MoMA PS1 members. It will be the last weekend to check out the final weekend of the Jenny Sabin Studio's Young Architecture Program's outdoor immersive installation Lumen, which will be lit up spectacularly in an after hours technicolor light show. The white, beehive-like enclosure is prime for an artsy new Insta. Plus, it's otherworldly enough to make you feel okay about staying in town for Labor Day.

The museum is also opening up its gallery for the night, so you can check out the summer exhibitions like Maureen Gallace: Clear DayTomas Rafa: New Nationalisms, and Ian Cheng: Emissaries before they close. Expect ample music, booze and M. Wells fare to fuel your gallery viewing. It doesn't sound like a bad way to usher in a long weekend of comparatively unvirtuous lazing around.
