Events

Bring in the new year in the style of NYC’s iconic underground theatre movement. “The Happenings” of the 1960’s and 1970’s took dance parties to the streets and subways so this year The Forney Museum of Transportation will host the first annual NYE Extravaganza in a Studio 54 themed soiree to celebrate an immersive art and STEM experience as we know it now.

Historical artifacts adorn the space while #ArtIsEverywhere installations and interactive guest experiences fill the space as guests dance to the tunes of three different DJs playing three different genres. Pick your channel with your crew based on red, green, and blue LED colors on the headphones. Experience “The Happenings” all throughout the night and around the museum space with a modernized twist on an historical period that changed the world.

The Forney Museum of Transportation supports entertainers, artists and innovators in STEM. Proceeds from ticket sales go to interactive museum programming. Come back any time during the month of January to see and photograph art collectively co-created during the event. At the end of the month we will host a random raffle from attendees who returned to win the art pieces created during the night.
