Sometimes you just have to mix business with pleasure on the weekend. And it makes sense. New opportunities in the professional world normally echo the age old adage, ”It’s not what you know, it’s who you know” – hey you are in Motor City.
So if you’re a social butterfly with a networking black belt, check out the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) Cirque: City Lights Dark Nights event; a night where business and pleasure merge into one world, a world where starring in a two-person conga line with new-CEO-from-down-the-street is the norm. Remember to carry and ask for business cards friends.
The event will take place at DIA’s spacious 658, 000 square foot gala (5200 Woodward Avenue) that holds 100 galleries, a 1,150-seat auditorium, 380-seat lecture/recital hall, an art reference library, and cutting-edge conservation services lab. When you walk in, artsy chandeliers holding cocktails wait for you to grab and enjoy.
This year Cirque will also feature the “Motor City Muse: Detroit Photographs, Then and Now,” project, which has been splashing headlines since late 2012.
Food will be available along with fancy-schmancy valet parking, music courtesy of Jared Sykes and DJ Prevu – just in case you want to shake your tail feather with your new friend – and much more.
Tickets go for $75 each and can be purchase through phone 313-833-4005 or at www.dia.org.
