Performances in the Galleries featuring Razzmajazz
7:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m.
As you stroll through the American Galleries, listen to American music from the 1920s, 30s, and 40s performed on clarinet, banjo, and bass by Razzmajazz.
Late Night Talk: Cult of the Machine: Precisionism and American Art
DMA curator Sue Canterbury will talk about the new exhibition Cult of the Machine: Precisionism and American Art, which examines American culture from the 1910s to the Second World War and reveals how the American love affair with new technology and mechanization shaped architecture, design, and the visual culture of the United States.
Late Night Main Stage featuring The Texas Gypsies
Dance to original and classic hit music influenced by the vintage jazzy swingin' cool hep cat sounds of 1920s, 30s, and 40s America, along with a taste of Western Swing, Gypsy Jazz, and a pinch of Retro Deco Rockabilly, performed by the award-winning Texas Gypsies! The band mixes passionate violin, rocking swingin' guitars, slappin' upright bass, and retro-style drumming to harmoniously create their own unique, fun, and artistic sound!
Late Night Talk: Deco Cool
Join UT Austin architecture professor Dr. Christopher Long for a talk about Art Deco design in the new exhibition Cult of the Machine: Precisionism and American Art. Long will discuss the defining characteristics of the Art Deco style and how it reflects American values in the early 20th century.
