PAM invites you to "rethink what can happen in a museum" with Shine a Light
. Local artists have re-imagined the galleries, lobbies, courtyards, and other museum spaces, inviting "Museum-goers to touch - and even tie the knot with - works of art, enjoy break dancing and music in the galleries, and see nude wrestling performances." There will also be food and special beers brewed just for the event.
