Who: Hipsters and the art crowd
What: Walker After Hours: Alter Ego
Where: Walker Art Center
When: Nov. 9, 2012
Why: To drink, dance, and get a first look at the Cindy Sherman photography exhibit.
The scene: The Cargill Lounge was the center of the action where guests danced to R&B, funk, and rock ‘n’ roll spun by Lady Hot Soul Party. While some took in the Cindy Sherman exhibit in the Target & Friedman Galleries, others noshed on appetizers from D’Amico in the Bazinet Garden Lobby.
Dress code: Most people dressed as their casual, trendy selves. But some took the Alter Ego theme literally by donning lavish costumes. Props to the gal who spent the entire night dressed as a cat.
Kudos: This party had not one but two photo booths. The Traveling Photo Booth gave guests a standard three-shot filmstrip to take home. But the Dress Up photo booth took it to another level. Guests got their hair and makeup done by Aveda stylists, dressed in costumes from the Guthrie Theater and Children’s Theatre Company, and struck a pose.
