Your early Friday double radar bleep: ‘Late Nights’ at the DMA – and – Crow


by Gini Mascorro 13 Nov 2007

Sorry, but this one was just too good to keep under wraps until Friday.  In celebration of the openings for ‘Domains of Wonder: Selected Masterworks of Indian Painting’ and the two related exhibits, ‘When Gold Blossoms: Indian Jewelry From The Susan L.

Sorry, but this one was just too good to keep under wraps until Friday.  In celebration of the openings for ‘Domains of Wonder: Selected Masterworks of Indian Painting’ and the two related exhibits, ‘When Gold Blossoms: Indian Jewelry From The Susan L. Beningson Collection’ and ‘Indian Miniature Paintings from the David T. Owsley Collection,’ the DMA is hosting its last ‘Late Night’ of the year and this time, they’re teaming up with the Crow Collection for some sub-continental love and doubling your museum-hopping pleasure for one night only…

Highlights of your evening include a Bollywood happy hour, a screening of Louis Malle’s 1969 documentary ‘Phantom India,’ talks on Hindu iconography and Tibetan art, an Indian dance performance, an open mic, coffee-fueled Insomniac tours, the lot.  Musically speaking, there’s DJ Viz for your Bhangra and Bollywood jones – or longtime local faves Brahma, featuring Jamal Mohamed on Middle Eastern drums and flute, South Indian percussionist Poovalur Srinivassan, Ed Smith on vibes and Balinese percussion, and Fred Hamilton, specializing in the Hindustani slide guitar and banjo.

And if your babysitter up and flakes out on you, no worries – this is a family-friendly affair, with Rangoli sessions, henna painting, and bedtime stories with the one and only Arturo.

So until Friday, saffron and pistachio dreams to you and yours…
