Fake Experience Headline August Art After Dark Concert
Now in its seventh year, Art After Dark integrates various art forms on the museum grounds, introduces children to MMoA’s programming, and provides regional artists a forum to showcase their work. Weather permitting, the event is held on the MMoA patio. August’s Art After Dark will be held from 6-830pm on Tuesday, August 15.
Combining rock, reggae, pop, and country, The Fake Experience will headline August’s concert.

Veterans of the local scene, The Fake Experience performs a mix of covers and originals that has generated a devoted following.
