Hyde after Dark set for July 2
Museum starts holiday weekend with Hyde after Dark - July 2
Glens Falls, NY – The Hyde Collection announces that Hyde after Dark is scheduled for 5:30 pm on Thursday, July 2, 2009, kicking off the Independence Day weekend. This event, which opens the Museum for evenings of music, socializing, and art, debuted in May of this year and brought in more than 125 people after normal Museum hours.
“Attendance at our first Hyde after Dark even surprised us,” said Executive Director David F. Setford. “Having debated opening in the evening hours, at least on an occasional basis, this event proved that combining good art, good music, and good friends is just a winning combination.”
Setford added that this event is a great way for individuals to come to The Hyde on a more regular basis and allows the institution to showcase the permanent collection, as well as changing exhibitions. The event was designed to make it as convenient as possible for potential visitors to come directly after work and socialize with friends while enjoying the Museum.
Hyde after Dark on the 2nd will feature live music by John Senata, light appetizers, a beer and wine bar, and an optional scavenger hunt designed by The Hyde’s Education Department specifically for the event.
Tickets for Hyde after Dark are $5 for members, $10 for non-member advanced purchase, and $12 for general admission at the door. Call the Museum at 518-792-1761, ext. 23 for additional information, to add your name to the Hyde after Dark electronic invitation list, or to purchase advance tickets. Individuals purchasing a new Museum membership at Hyde after Dark get in free of charge.
The event is sponsored by Davidson Brothers Restaurant and Brewery and Astica Winery. Media sponsor is The Chronicle.
