Museum London puts arts and culture at the forefront every third Thursday
The Third Thursday event is an extension of the Museum's Underground Devil's Night, which takes place every year near Halloween. Devil's Night features live bands, treats, pop-up bars and other Halloween-themed events. This unique soiree now happens thoughout the year and features various live bands and exhibits.
In February, the monthly Third Thursday event featured live musical performances from Londonbased bands S.M. and Confidence Antler. Halifax-based band COUSINS was the headliner that night. Imaging Disaster and Under the Weather were the two amazing art exhibits featured. Imaging Disaster featured pieces that were historical and contemporary visions of environmental and social crises. Under The Weather featured pieces that displayed different extreme weather events that took place in London throughout the years and showed how they affected the city.
In March, visitors who attend Third Thursday will be able to take part in a live and interactive art workshop brought to you by Craft Lab. A pop-up bar is also available for guests to enjoy. Matt Thomas is the marketing coordinator for Museum London and is involved with planning Third Thursday events. He said people should come out and enjoy the event because “the Museum is really the cultural hub of London. If you are a student at Fanshawe or Western and don't know the city that well, (and you've) already experienced Richmond Row and know what the campus life is like, there is a lot more that you could experience. London has a very vibrant and creative scene and Third Thursdays gives you the chance to be a part of it.”
The next Third Thursday event takes place at Museum London (421 Ridout St. N.) on March 21. The exact lineup hasn't been announced yet, but rest assured it will be a night of fun and culture. Tickets are available at the door for just $5. More details will be posted on the Museum London website soon, so be sure to check museumlondon.ca frequently for updates.
