Due to high demand, the Perot Museum of Nature and Science has released a limited quantity of last-minute tickets to its sold-out adults-only event – Social Science: Patterns – on Friday, June 23, from 7-11 p.m. The afterhours affair, which celebrates the mysterious, full-of-history Maya: Hidden Worlds Revealed exhibition, will have guests exploring the plentiful patterns found in nature, fashion and architecture with play-and-party activities and experiments, super-sized games and more for an evening that’s anything but redundant. And with quirky cocktails, a Wolfgang Puck gastropub, tequila tastings and beats by DJ Bradford, Social Science is not your ordinary museum visit!
Enjoy festive Maya dances by Grupo Pakal, see dancing spherical robots, travel back in time with adult story time about an ancient Aztec hunter and warrior, and hear from various experts on ancient Texas art, Maya calligraphy, the brain, and beer brewing. Get your game on with giant Jenga, Connect 4, Rubik’s Cubes and Makey Makey Tetris, and unlock your creative side with a fashion and design challenge, screen printing and a Maya coloring mural.
Also examine and decipher ancient patterns in conjunction with the Perot Museum’s traveling exhibition, Maya: Hidden Worlds Revealed, and create your own secret message out of patterns and symbols.
Only a few tickets – which will go fast – have been released and are on sale now at perotmuseum.org. (Entry into the Maya: Hidden Worlds Revealed exhibition requires a surcharge.) Guests must be 21 years of age with valid ID. Social Science is presented by Riveron Consulting and supported by Tequila Herradura. Please drink responsibly.
