Don your finest feathers for the first Asia After Dark of 2015, the thirteenth in this series of beloved after-hours parties. Flash back to the gilded glamour of the Peacock Room and meet its alter ego Filthy Lucre, an installation by contemporary artist Darren Waterston that reimagines Whistler’s famous work as a resplendent ruin. Strut through the galleries sporting gold temporary tattoos, take offbeat tours, fashion your own masterpiece, and make fun photo-booth memories. While sipping specialty cocktails, shake a tail feather to music by activist pop rock trio BETTY and repeat the Asia After Dark mantra: Art, Drink, and Be Happy!

Want to experience it all for free? Join the Silk Road Society, our dynamic membership group for young professionals. You'll be invited to tours, cocktail receptions, and behind-the-scenes events.

Asia After Dark: PEACOCKalypse is an official event of Capital Pride and the Pride in the Nation's Capital Celebration June 3-14.
