Bring friends—and meet new ones— at this after-hours gathering. Music, performances, indie art experiences, specialty cocktails, and more make for a great opportunity to unwind after work and immerse yourself in the hypnotic lights of Leo Villareal. Ride the Juicecycle, a bicycle- powered machine for harvesting and processing produce. Juice local fruit for your own cocktail. Bring your mobile phone for a Twitter treasure hunt.

The internationally acclaimed photographer Catherine Opie, whose work is featured in Degrees of Separation, adroitly balances the personal and the political, contemporary life and art historical precedents. Opie, a professor of photography at the university of California, Los Angeles, will discuss her provocative images and her interest in subcultures, women, and social constructs of identity. Melissa & Lake, Durham, North Carolina (1998, from the series “Domestic”) is a recent addition to SJMA’s collection.
