SAM Remix, a late night creative explosion of art, music, dancing and performances, is one of the most fun museum events in town…and it’s back again this Friday! Pre-purchase tickets are sold out, but you can still purchase tickets at 7:30 when the doors open. Though these tickets don’t include entry to the Gauguin and Polynesia exhibit, you’ll still be able to enjoy all the fun of the event. Also, the first 50 dressed in sunshine yellow, lined up outside the museum entrance at 1st & Union street, get in free..
