The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden opens its doors from 8 p.m. to midnight today to host Hirshhorn After Hours.

The special event will include live music and gallery tours for participating guests.

The museum’s many exhibits will be on display, including Andy Warhol’s 1978 “Shadows” exhibit with its 102 silkscreened and hand-painted canvases. The exhibit features photographs of shadows that Warhol developed in his studio. “Shadows,” which extends uninterrupted for almost 450 linear feet, is organized by The Dia Art Foundation.

The Hirshhorn’s extended hours will also include live performances by The Crystal Ark and Nancy Whang on the Plaza. Guests can enjoy the Whang’s fusion of favela funk and South American rave music, all while sipping on a drink from the bar.

Tickets must be purchased in advance for $25 on the Hirshhorn website. All members are guaranteed free admission as well as complementary access to the VIP lounge.
