The weekend begins early every second Thursday at the DMA’s Off the Wall, a brand new program that takes an unexpected look at the Museum’s collection. Kick off the evening with a pop, twist, and clink with a specially curated concoction, glass of vino, or cold brew. From crafts and gallery tours, to cocktails and quizzes, to discos and DJs, Off the Wall is where art and pop culture meet to form a masterpiece.
