Come show us what Gorgeous means to you on opening night. In celebration of our summer exhibition, the Asian Art Museum presents Grit & Glamour—your chance to dress up or dress down and show it aaalll off at the museum. Get your nails correct with TopCoat Nail Studio, who’ll be in-house to decorate nails with fresh designs inspired by the exhibition’s stunning artwork. DJs Dr. Sleep, Robot Hustle (Honey Soundsystem), Natalie Nuxx and davO (Double Duchess) will keep us moving and sweating throughout the night, while the International Haus of Nu Benetton vogues all over the museum—getting Gritty downstairs first, then following up with a Glamorous finale upstairs. Need to cool down? Do so with some silky sips of milk tea courtesy of Boba Guys.

If 11 PM is too early to call it quits, join us for an after-party at our neighbor, The Stud (399 9th St). SOME THING Gorgeous will serve up more partying, drag, art and performance, with shows at 11 and midnight. Doors open at 10. Just $10.

About Gorgeous
When it comes to viewing art, it’s all in the eye of the beholder. Artworks from the Asian Art Museum and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art—appearing together for the first time—invite you to get personal and explore what “gorgeous” means to you. Come take a look, engage in some one-on-one with the objects, and see what happens.
