Get groovy at the Memorial Art Gallery's Psychedelic exhibition opening party!
MAG's iconic Cutler Union tower will be transformed into a giant lava lamp, and vintage Volkswagens from the Finger Lakes Region Volkswagen Club will be throughout MAG's front lawn. Inside, the Rochester Knighthawks' Knightingales will be go-go dancing all around this party; also in attendance will be the Ten Ugly Men. Go Media and City Newspaper will showcase psychedelic light shows during Hypnotiq cocktail tastings. Relax on period furnishings in Metro Retro's lava lounge while having your tarot card reading. Relive the era by viewing the 1969 movie Woodstock in the auditorium. Get a souvenir of this party with
your own henna tattoo while listening to ViewSport play 1960's tracks.
