Sorry I'm late with this, but tonight is SAM Remix—where the museum opens up and livens up from 8 to midnight.

And there are some definite highlights, especially personalized tours of the art by Jessica Powers, Regina Hackett, Yoko Ott and Scott Lawrimore, and Adriana Grant—all of whom I'd want to hear.

Plus there's music by SunTzu Sound and the accordionist from Hey Marseilles, a bearded lady competition, and more.

I was just at SAM last night (Thursdays are always open late!) and admiring the latest installation of modern and contemporary works at the top of the escalators. It's called Guys and Dolls and has some unexpected gems, like these.
