The Guest List:
NORTHWEST -- With barely a cloud in the sky and a fiery waxing crescent moon perched above the city, the Art Museum of the Americas' (AMA) annual ‘Art After Dark’ celebration couldn’t have asked for a more perfect summer evening.

A crowded outdoor landscape.

Now in its second year, the sold-out event drew hundreds to the Paul Cret-designed historic museum (commissioned by the Organization of American States) just a few blocks from the National Mall, for a night of libations, conversation, and culture.

Guests were treated to live performances by Matthew Hemerlein, Screen Vinyl Image, and DJ Smudge throughout the event, while enjoying a scattering of open bars spread out across the venue’s picturesque outdoor garden and patio areas.

Inside the museum, a diverse display of art had been curated, featuring the work of Kristina Bilonick, Carlos Florez, Billy Frieble, Philip Hodges, Melissa Krodman, Carolina Mayorga, and Wilmer Wilson.

For those looking for a bite to eat, a trio of food trucks (including the always affable Doug the Food Dude) sat parked outside the front of the building and each ticket also ensured admission to a swank after party at Georgetown’s private L2 Lounge.

Proceeds from the evening will be used to support exhibitions, education, and public programs spearheaded by the AMA.

Lights out; culture in!
